I am sure if Microsoft Office were unavailable to me that Open Office would be useful. All the systems in office (or maybe just the ones I us) are familiar to me in M.W.. I tried downloading two versions(English and Spanish to see if it would translate between the versions for those dual letters home but, the system wouldn't let me. I will have to do some more checking on that!
Google Docs is another matter. I can see me using it since it has a shortcut to all the other Google services I have discovered so far in this web play thing. The action toolbars and commands are very similar to M.W. and so they feel comfortable.It is also available OFFLINE so you can work on documents when you are not connected!
