Open Office 1.1

Link: OpenOffice.org

I don't do a lot of word processing (vi is my editing tool) or spreadsheets, and all anyone has to do is look at this website to know that I know nothing about graphics, making things pretty, and so on.

But other people do, and this can be a good choice instead of Microsoft. I know quite a few people that use it, but you do need to be aware that it's not necessarily a drop-in replacement. For example, one client would have liked to use it, but found they would have had to rewrite all their macros, and they have a LOT of macros. So for them, it wouldn't work.

It might be just right for you, though.
