I can get this for Free

Should I do it, or use something else? I'd really only be using Word.

It really depends on if you mean that you can get this for free legally.

Yes, that's what I meant legally. I have a fear of downloading Programs over P2P Sites. I get this dreading feeling that if I do the Cops will be at my house the next day or something

EDIT: I meant, should I get something better? I heard OpenOffice I think it's called, is pretty good.

LOL, just checking.

It's up to you and what you need, but Microsoft Office has more features.

Word is really the only thing I'd need. I'm gonna start College soon though so I'm sure I'd need other products in the long run. Office it is then, thanks Brink

EDIT: Do I need Outlook? I use WLMail 2011

That's no problem. When you install Office, you will have an option to do a custom install and select only the programs (ex: Word) that you want to install.

No, you do not need or have to install Outlook. Windows Live Mail works just fine either way.

Windows Live Mail runs pretty good...

If don't think you'll use Outlook I wouldn't get it (usually cheaper without it)
