It's Free! A great alternative to buying Microsoft Office. It has many office programs built into the suite. It's very simple to use - and that's coming from someone who could never get to grips with office software. It's compatible with many file formats - including standard doc and the rest. Open Office has progressed so much that it just gets better and better. Very good software indeed!
It doesn't 'Respond' quite a lot. But it sorts itself out quite quickly - hence my 4.5/5 stars rating, but it should be a 5 really if it wasn't for this.
As it is compatible with many file formats including those for MS, I can feel safe in the knowledge that the work I am doing on it will be viewable by MS formats.
I tried Open Office about 4 years ago, and the difference now (in this version) is amazing. It's such more user friendly and less scary for someone like me. And I can see how it has come on since back then.
I do not regret getting it :)
