It's free and looks/feels exactly like Microsoft Office. The only difference is the free version doesn't have that ribbon bar interface which most people (including me) hate anyway so it's actually a bonus!
It does everything I need and it's much smaller to download and install.
Thanks,niceguy2. I'll have a look at that. I'm coping with Open Office but it struggles with some documents, specially .docx files.
I suspect you might be more technically minded than I am, Pedro. I simply want to use my computer as a means to do various tasks (with a bit of Minesweeper, Freecell and MN while I wait for things to happen), with the facilities I need clearly presented, and have no interest in all the wonderful things offered in a load of tiles (mostly banished at last) and the way I use video and my email dictated to me.
