I dont know if I mentioned this before so if I did, here it is again……
I try not to use any commercial software but instead use open source alternatives. One of the best I ave found is Open Office. As the name implies its like M$ Office but its freeware/open source.
Its completely compatible with M$ Office (I havent had any problems yet) and it comes with programs that are the equivalent to the M$ alternatives.
