Anybody tried it yet?
I haven't tried Open Office.
I can verify Microsoft Office works on Windows 10.
Downloading it now.
I had no problems using open office on either the Win 10 beta builds or the final release. Granted I don't do much with it other than look at excel documents but it's worked find everytime I've tried to open one.
Anybody try w10 w/Abiword or Ableword?
I haven't tried. But with the latest release of Libre Office it's now a superior open source office suite.
I really liked Abiword as it's faster and lighter than OpenOffice and LibreOffice. It seems it hasn't been updated in a long time and didn't work right for me with newer versions of Windows.
The newest version of LibreOffice, version 5, seems a bit quicker than older versions and now has a 64 bit version for Windows available.
I like OpenOffice but all I really need out of any of the Windows Office-like "suite" is the word processing-ware. OpenOffice almost seems like its word processing section has TOOOOO much packed into it - nearly making it as annoying to navigate as full-fledged MS Word suitewares.
I haven't tried it in a long time but OpenOffice used to have a custom install option where you could choose which parts of the program you wanted to install. There was a separate project that developed a program that was just the word processor from OpenOffice but I don't know if it is still available.
Yea, you could do the custom install if you wanted to only install the word processor.
It looks like LibreOffice allows installing just the word processor by choosing the custom install option and on the third(?) page of the installer choose to install only, "Writer." The whole installer still needs to be downloaded and the Writer only isn't any faster or much lighter as it the installed program is only a few MB's smaller than the whole office suite but it does cut down simplify the program interface to just the word processor.
Have any of you guys used Google Drive documents? I just uploaded a Word document and it seemed to work fine. And with Google Drive there is no downloading at all, it is web based.
Google Drive works well for me. I do have to be connected to the internet to use it but has a lot of features and options. When it was Google Docs it had 10 GB of free storage. Now that's Google Drive the free storage is 5GB but that's still quite a bit and I write and create documents and save them to my computer.
