Why not try Open Office?
All the same programs, free, and you can open and save to the universal microsoft formats (.doc, etc)
www.openoffice.org i believe

I've never heard of it. I'll give it a shot when I get home. Thanks for the info! :-)

I just use Google Docs these days. It keeps all your docs in the cloud, but you can also save them to your computer in several different formats, including MS Office formats, if you need to.

Thanks Fluffy. I downloaded Open Office and it seemed to do the trick. I tried the Torrent route Rez suggested but I didn't like what all it did to my toolbar and the pop ups, So I deleted it. I'm still gonna check with IT about corporate Monday.

I agree with fluffy. Google Docs is the way to go. You can always use it as a backup.

nthsll when ever you install anything...always check the options...and don't install the toolbar crap.....reinstall and don't install the toolbar.

Google docs has plenty of issues also. It just doesnt integrate well with office files like Open Office does. If youre not going to use MS OFfice then the next best choice is Open Office hands down. And its free with lots of support and user customization addons. http://amplicate.com/hate/google-docs

I have Open Office... the only downside of it is, it's not compatible to those who don't have it- something that is critical when you're trying to send out your resume.
