Default Microsoft Word

Anywhere I can download Microsoft Word? It didn't come with my comp of Win2K and I need it for school.

Well, I won't condone any piracy, but if you want some alternatives, that I can help with.

1. Abiword - great standalone word processor that runs on virtually any OS and has lots of plug-ins.

2. OpenOffice - Full office suite with a word processor, spreadsheet, the woiks. You can either grab the latest beta, or go with the latest stable release (1.1.4).

http://www.openoffice.org/


Those are the two biggest ones I can think of. I'll be sure to post more if I find any.

I wasn't aware that what I was asking for was piracy...

I just thought that it should have been included in my copy of Win2k and it wasn't.

But thanks for the alternatives. I'm just looking for something that will show pages like WORD shows them, will those programs do that?

Absolutley, the interfaces are very similar. I actually even prefer the interface to OpenOffice to MS Office.

P.S. Here's a few more word processors:
