OpenOffice is a very good, free, open source office platform very similar to Microsoft Office. It's now available for download from Overclock.net!<br />

OpenOffice.org 3 is the leading open-source office software suite for word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, graphics, databases and more. It is available in many languages and works on all common computers. It stores all your data in an international open standard format and can also read and write files from other common office software packages. It can be downloaded and used completely free of charge for any purpose.

I love openoffice. Even though while using it in University I ended up emailing assignments that formatted strange.

Wonderful, do-it-all free program. Too bad the .doc integration isn't always perfect.

OpenOffice rocks. I love using it instead of Word. I have Word 07 and it is hard to get around on. I do like the newer Access though.

I found that transferring it to PDF before e-mailing it helps. It is also nice if you use Kinko's to print any of these documents up while on the go, since they only can print files from MS Office or PDF off a memory device. Its easy, just make a PDF copy in your file.

Some recent news for you open office lovers:<br />
<br />
Oracle and OpenOffice have split. As Oracle owned the trademark to OpenOffice, OpenOffice is now called LibreOffice until a more official name can be decided. (Maybe ClarisDoesn'tWork?)

So it has a new name? The website still has it as OpenOffice.

The OpenOffice name was actually transisitioned to Apache Software Foundation. They may continue with the OpenOffice name, so OpenOffice may not be truly dead. Who knows.
