I wondered if anyone knew anything about the Office application suite Open Office, available from www.openoffice.org? I've been using it myself for several months now and found it to be both fairly easy to use (once I had it copied into Shared Documents in XP) and reliable. It's cross platform and it's the right price as well:)
Yes I use Microsoft Office 2000 at work and Word by preference at home, I uninstalled the rest of the Microsoft Works suite. About all I use from Open Office is the spreadsheet facility which I do find useful. But I keep it on the system in case it comes in handy:)
I did try the HTML editor and really didn't like the way it worked - it didn't like me fiddling with the HTML either.
