    If I may be helpful, I'd like to second myessence's opinion, and translate :)
    (myessence - I assume English is not your primary language... but you do pretty well, anyway!)

    Microsoft Office is the most famous. Opensource has released a similar office program called OpenOffice. It works very much like Microsoft Office.

    First, the icons: save, open, new file... while the icons look different, they mean the same thing. OpenOffice has had a PDF icon for a long time. This icon is used to change the document to a .pdf file.

    OpenOffice is compatible with Microsoft Office. You can create files, for example, like an Excel file, by clicking File -> New -> Select, then choose the type of document you want to create.

    OpenOffice has the following: Writer (Word), Calc (Excel), Impress (PowerPoint), Draw (something like CorelDraw), Math (Equation), HTML Document (FrontPage), and others.

    OpenOffice is on version 2.0.

    I am using Openoffice 2.0. I have also used it's earlier version on Windows and Linux. From my experience with Openoffice I can say that it is shortly going to be a serious challenger to the popularity of it's well known counterpart.

    I like OpenOffice. Even its "Writer" version is easier to use than MS Word, in my opinion! Though it does seem to have a few of the same issues. The only thing it's missing, in my opinion, is a counterpart to MS Publisher.
