    Which software to use for word documents?

    Advertisement



    I need some advice for which software to use for word documents. This is for my dad who is not really computer savy. The following are installed on his computer, Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007, Microsoft Office Standard Edition 2003, and Microsoft Office XP Professional with Frontpage. Should we use one of the Microsoft products or something else entirely? Any advice would be helpful. Thanks.

    I use Open Office. I don't believe in giving MicroSuck another dime of my money since they started funding HSUS.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    I would recommend the standard edition if all he needs is MS word. You can also purchase word as a standalone app if that is the only thing he needs and has no need for excel, powerpoint, or access. If he is looking for a word processor app and will not be mailing these docs to anyone and will only need to see or print them, then MS works is a very nice app that also has some nice add on fun stuff included with it.

    Ditch them all and go for Openoffice. I use it all the time, it's free, stable and works without glitches! (unlike Word!)

    Thanks for all the advice guys. I agree on Microsoft being Microsuck and am going to check out Open Office.

    OpenOffice or AbiWord are both great word processors and both are multiplatform =)
