Random question for the tech savvy. . .
Ok, heres the long and short of it. About two weeks ago my computer got hit with a really nasty hoard of viruses and the hard drive had to be wiped clean and everything reinstalled. Today when I went to open a new word document to type some stuff out for a commission project I discovered- that I no longer have Microsoft word (btw- if its necessary information I have an early 2000 something or other Dell running Widows . . . .crap can't think of which one but I think its the version before Vista. . . yeah >. Upon this discovery I got to thinking "Didn't the ex have something called Open Office?" So the question I pose is this: Do any of you folks know much about Open Office, would you suggest it and is it trustworthy (read: won't introduce any gnarly compy viruses to my computer)?
