And yes it supports all the popular Microsoft formats!!!

Have given it to a few of our clients who are very happy with it - remember it's FREE!!!
Anything not Micro$oft is good in my opinion.

In a related question...

Do I need to buy a second copy of Office to put it on my Laptop, or can I use the existing software on both that and the Desktop? I've been told that you can have it on up to 3 machines if you own them - but not sure if this is right or not.

Whenever I boot-up Word on the second machine, it asks me to register - and when I do it says that it already is and I need to ring Microsoft. So before I do that.........

Dylan...

Do you mean register or activate?

You don't HAVE to register with Microsoft if you don't want to. However you must activate the software. If it's already been activated on another machine it might be funny about letting you do it on a second (although it can work sometimes ie. Outlook on my machines(s)).

I mean activate - and it is being funny!!

It looks like it is a licence per machine - so I will take the opportunity to explore Cod's alternative OpenSource stuff rather than line Microsoft's pockets further......

Of course there are unscrupulous methods out there that will allow you to install it on a second machine….
