At surplus computer or computer surplus they have word programs from Correl on sale very low price.

Correl has a very serviceable Office suite that includes WordPerfect, QuattroPro, a presentation program similar to PowerPoint and some other programs. The last version I used personally was v8 but at the time it would import MS Office files pretty well.In general Correl Office has the same capabilities as MS Office.

The is also an open source office suite called Open Office that has much of the capabilities of MS Office. You can Google Open Office and find their web site for more information and download. It can also import MS Office files and in general write MS Office compatable files.

Thanks for the prompt reply ac:cool:

Surplus computor has corell word perfect office X3 for 25.00 (free frt.)

or as a oem for 19.99 in a jewl box (less instruction book I guess). for $20.00.

They also have great deals on camera memory and flash drives. Many of their items

also include free frt.. I have bought from them before and are reliable.:cool:

Thanks,

Open Office would have my vote. I use it with both Windows XP Pro and Linux, even though I've got a legal copy of MS Office for use with Windows.

If you're looking at strictly word processing (versus an entire office suite), you may also want to take a look at AbiWord. It's got a bit lighter footprint for better performance on challenged hardware.

P.S.

If you also need a replacement for Outlook, give Thunderbird a try.

If you want a replacement for Micrsoft's software, including Windows, I'd give SimplyMEPIS 6.5.02 a try.

Another good Linux distro to try would be PCLinuxOS 2007:

Both of those already have loads of good software pre-installed, including Open Office.
