    Good program, but it's NOT Word.

    Sorry. He wants the real thing, not the equivalent of a blow-up doll.

    No, but it does everything Word can do plus some things it cant, includes
    the entire suite, and since it's licensed under the GPL, is FREE for the
    download. It can replace Microsoft Office, which is very expensive, and
    perform all the same thing Office can plus a few more. Current rev is 3.2.

    Long time user,

    OOo is a nice program, but it doesn't include anything like Outlook.

    True, but MS will never provide one of their "paid for" applications
    for a free download. You might be able to "buy" a "digital download"
    of Word but at an expensive price.
