Hi, Has anybody got any experience with Open only I was thinking of getting it for a PC which had XP and nothing else.

what do you reckon?

It works,its free,but you'd be better equiped if you buy a version of M$ Office.

Should be OK, but there are other Free Office programs

Thanks for the replies,I may have misled a little bit, it's not that I want an Office programme but really a substitute for M/S Word,
nothing too fancy, just a spell check and a few special fonts.
I don't know what the going price is for M/S Word, but I'll bet it's too much.

Open Office is an excellent program for the price.

Seriously, for general day to day use, it is ideal.

Thanks Cdstowe, that'll do me.
