How To Download Mircosoft Word And Powerpoint?

Now, on the other hand, if you do want a similar word processing system for free, you can always download OpenOffice here: http://www.openoffice.org/. Programs similar to word and powerpoint are both in there. Good luck.

If you want real advanced word processing, try LaTeX. Not really suited for general use though, it's populair with scientific papers because of the extra power you get in controlling how equations & symbols are displayed.
Myself I definitely prefer working with Office Vista, but I don't think you (the OP) will miss out on features with OpenOffice. Just get something with a spell checker, you need it :\

I guess there are some other open-source alternatives to Powerpoint as well. If you just want to view Powerpoint files there are different versions of Powerpoint Viewer available from Microsoft's website for free. You can find the newest version here, while the older one (much smaller but still handles a lot of newer PowerPoint files) is available here.

It's EXACTLY like MS Office, just minus all the bogus licensing, GUI features, and buggyness (if that is a word). However, my mom got me MS Office 2003 for only $15 because the college she used to work for had this contract with Microsoft and the software was really cheap... so that's the only reason why I use it, else I'd use OpenOffice.
