    Word is a word processing program. It does a LOT of stuff. Since Microsoft software is the most widely used, being compatible with MS Office file formats is, while maybe not an absolute requirement, a definite plus.

    You can order a CD with a trial version of MS Office 2003 on this page. It includes Word so you can see for yourself whether you want to buy it. Word can be bought as a part of the Office suite or it can be bought as a stand-alone program.

    I've never used any Corel office applications so I really can't tell you what they will and will not do.

    There are at least two office suites out there which are free and which support (can open and use) MS Office formats. 602 PC Suite and Open Office.

    I've messed with 602 PC Suite and I liked it.
