If your workplace is involved with the Home Use Program you can get Office for $15. If you're in college, you can sometimes get MS products (including office) for free; or at least discounted.

Office Online is free if you want an MS product (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote):

alternative to that would be Google Docs.

If you don't want online, browser-based, then Libre Office is a good alternative to MS Office.

If you're in one of the high schools that provides student email with a .edu email address, you may still qualify for the educational version.

Libre Office is the more maintained one, IIRC. The original developers of OO made Libre after OO was bought (originally by Oracle... but I think Apache now owns OO? I don't remember for sure lol).

Yeah, but no matter how 'compatible' they are with Office, there still seem to be formatting issues. For somebody doing projects, if they can obtain a copy free or cheap, I would recommend that above LO or OO.

That's why I suggested Office Online, which is free with a Microsoft account .
