Yes, open office is good. they had a review of it in last months "Smart Computing" magazine. its a nice free program, but it lost some points in extras, which were mostly templates and stuff like that, mostly for Power point.
the only downside i ahve seen from open office, is when useing its word processor, it saves them by defualt as a weird format, to get them as a normal document you need to manually change it when you save it the first time. Do this by changing the format drop down thing to "*.doc" but with out the quotes. It can open any word document made in office.
