The alternative {home,office,school,fun} productivity suite is a great productivity package, comprising of a word processor, a spreadsheet, a drawing utility, and even a presentation package, among other things like being your kitchen sink HTML Editor. It runs on Windows platforms, Linux and even Mac OSX (this is not to forget the BSD's out there, and other open environments).

Being a relatively large fan, I've created a resource for OOo (as it has affectionately become known as) users.
