Open Office, Google Docs, or an old version of Word?


I have an old XP version of MS Word which, surprisingly, seems to work well enough on my new Windows 8.1. Until I discovered it would work, I've been trying out Google Docs and Open Office and finding them tricky, especially for printing. Is it worth persisting? Which would you go for?

    I'm not convinced Word will work as well as it did on my old machine but I think I'll persist.

    Word XP isn't supposed to work on Windows 8, so I'm waiting and holding my breath.

    I'm going to give Scrivener a trial because it does seem popular and useful for projects. I tried Open Office for printing some labels but it gave me a page where the only usable labels were the ones in the middle.
