Yes, very good.
Snapfiles.com and Softpedia.com are trustworthy sites to download freeware from.
Everything is tested first before it gets on their sites.

Well, after playing with OpenOffice for about a week, I say OpenOffice is easier to use than Office97 and has a few more features. I can not judge OO by anything else as Office97 is the only MS version of this type of software I have ... well, I have no other versions of this type of software other than these two.

David, if you can find OpenOffice on a cd, I say get it. I think you will like it better than Office97.    :)

Check out this link for a cd ......

http://distribution.openoffice.org/cdrom/

Be sure to scroll far down to the United Kingdom section.    ;)

Just got this in zdnet news about OpenOffice and MS Office. I thought it might "throw a little more light" on the comparison in more mordern terms than Office97.

PS - if you use an ad blocker, you may want to turn it off or you may have trouble reading this page. Of course, that may depend on the settings in your ad blocker.    ;)

Currently it doesn't throw any more light on comparison as the author is asking for assistance in this task. However, they do put forward a few reasons why to choose OpenOffice.

MS Office has almost by default become the Industry Standard and in the days were you couldn't view or edit different document formats anyone who had to read .doc files could only do it with Word or had to send documents to business. Not the case any longer and with the move towards XML document format for standardisation there may well be some other small footprint solutions out there.

No problems with the Ads, I think. My firewall blocks ads as does firefox, so not many get through that lot, but the page appeared to display fine.

Jarte a Wordprocessor with a lot of punch but small enough to put on your USB drive. (That's where I've put it.)
Does Your Word Processor Handle Like an Ocean Liner?
Why not give Jarte a try.  :)

Rather than using 411 and paying for a phone number you can get the
number for free after listening to a 15 second commercial.
 (1-800-411-save)

This may not be software but it will save you money if you're in the US.

Enjoy  :)
