Alternative to Works Suite

Horror of horrors! I cant find my Works Suite dvd. After insalling new hard drive and XP pro, I am now without my beloved Works Suite 2005!

Is there an alternative (free!)? Ive seen a bit about Open Office and Star Office. I know they appear to be compatible with MS Office, but are they compatible with MS Works? Will I be able to open Works Suite (Word) files, and Works spreadsheets?

Or am I going to have to buy Works Suite again.....?

Thanks folks!! True, I have nothing to lose by trying them!

Also im just wondering if a word processor document created in Open Office can be opened in MS Office, as I regularly have to send attachments to people.

You just have to make sure you save it as a .doc file.
