    BLAH I am so tired of people thinking Word Processor and ONLY thinking Office. There are tons of amazing free and cheap alternatives to that 400 dollar bloatware but people are too dumb to realize that you dont NEED to use Office.

    Unless you have huge excel docs or a pressing need to absolutly make sure your document is formatted the same when it is opened by Microsoft, Neo Office, iWork Open Office or even Apples built in Textedit will work just fine. Of that whole list only one costs 80 bucks, the rest are free. I use Neo for my general stuff like letters and lists and the like, while iWork I use for projects as its part WP part layout in the vein of InDesign just not nearly as functional but more intuitive.

    The comments at the Mac-word-processing-complaint link point out the stupidity of the complaint. Microsoft Word/Office is an add-on to PCs (frequently bundled, but still an extra); the PC freebee is WordPad. Apple includes TextEdit free, and it does more than WordPad, including spell checking, etc. It’s a perfectly good as a “ready-out-of-the-box” word processor, and has more features than you realize at first glance.

    Falconfire covered the other main point–a lot of alternatives are easily available for free.
