After getting my new system up and running awhile ago I loaded Office 2000 on but due to DOCX, and not wanting to by 3 new versions of MSO$'s
I thought I'd try Yes Open Office. My only concerns were if some spread sheets I had been working on were going to transfer over successfully on to an organizations system I help out with at times. But they did so my wife is quite happy and is slowly working her way around it all be it slowly as she uses 13 at work. Which also means more money for camera gear. . So if your low on $'s and wanting some new Office software give it a go IT'S FREE.
PS. You Don't have to buy a copy off Ebay.
