I don't really care for Microsoft Office. But this morning, my wife downloaded the whole suite as part of a promotion that her company had with Microsoft.

It cost ten dollars. For the whole, fully functional thing.

Suddenly, I like it a lot more.

I am retired. Please let me know if there is ANYTHING in office worthwhile. I am sure I do not need it.

Nothing that Open Office, which is free, can't do, and frequently better.

I'm retired too and I like my computer but my needs are very minima. A little e-mail, a simple word processor, a a reliable browser, a little storage space, and enough horses to giddy up and go when speed is called for.

Gates allegedly said that when they asked people which they preferred, Notepad or Word, they said Word. Well, sure. But wanting a car instead of a bike doesn't mean you want to be able to break the land speed record.
