Hi

I have an essay to write for work and do not have the Word package on my computer. Can anyone recommend a free download which is similar to the Microsoft Word package? I will need to e mail the essay to colleagues and also save and print.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you to all who manage to help. Baskerville

Libre Office is a good free package as is Open Office.

They should both be fine for your purpose.

You will already have one. Wordpad.

You have not said which Windows Op Sys you have, however all of them XP, Vista, W7 have Wordpad which you can save document in .rtf format (rich text format) that can be opened in just about any word program that they have at t'other end that you send to. Certainly opens in Microsoft Office programs.

In XP: Start | All Programs | Accessories | Wordpad
