    Why not http://www.ThinkFree.com? In terms of UI it blows openoffice away = same UI = much less hair pulled out.
    I often forget that I am not working in office.
    Functionality is not equivalent to MS Office, but, for normal user, I hardly doubt that you will miss anything.
    Excel is always a problem due to addins.
    Ppt has no animation
    Word is what I use most & I can’t tell that it’s not MS.

    I totally agree, I found SSuite Office much nicer than the other office suites. I can’t believe they have such a wide selection of office suites and software{All Free}. :-)

    They even have a full HD office suite that is only 27 MB in download size, now that is what I call efficiency!! 😀

    A must for the software geek on a budget! 😉
