I have OpenOffice, but I use it mainly for formatting my books. It took me a little while to learn how everything worked (but I'm slow at learning new software of any kind), but once I did, I like it more than Word. If you want to download it, be sure to go to the official website at openoffice.org . Even though they do ask for a donation, you can download it completely free. Another great thing about it is, unlike many other free programs, you'll receive all of the updates (which are also free) as long as you set it up that way.
