Should I just use OpenOffice or is there anything else worth trying out?

    The Office 365 subscription is actually really reasonable for what you get, the downside is you can't install individual apps. Of all the other alternatives Open Office is probably the best.

    I thought about the Office 365 subscription deal but I'm only do the occasional doc edit so it's not really worth it. I'll give OpenOffice a go.

    You don't need to sign up to their subscription model. The boxed copy is about £60.

    Ah right. I may look at it later on then if I don't get on with OpenOffice.

    Google docs reads .doc files. MS Word for mac would probably do it better.

    8GB for fucking Word alone , seriously MS what the fucking hell??? That's ~2/3rds the entire Creative Cloud suite, for a word processor.

    I use Libre Office, a fork of OpenOffice.
