Using Open Office
Open Office gives you the most commonly-used office productivity tools. As with most Open Source software, it's free. Many people and companies are now using Open Office as a no-cost replacement for Microsoft Office.
If you buy a new computer, it will probably come equipped with Microsoft Windows, but an office suite will cost extra. Forget the extra-cost software. You can have Open Office for free and still do the same office tasks. Best of all, you're not locked in to using it on only one type of computer. It runs on Microsoft Windows, Linux, Sun Solaris, Mac OS X (under X11), and FreeBSD.
