It has the equivalent of Microsoft Word, Excel, Frontpage, Powerpoint, and a drawing program. A neat feature (not aware if MS Office has it) is that you can save word documents as PDFs.

When using it, it looks and feels just like the MS Office versions, same interface and everything. And it's free. MS Office is anywhere from $200 and higher.

It is fully compatible with most, if not nearly all, Microsoft extensions (.ppt, .doc, .xls, etc.)

To run it, you'll need Java Runtime 1.4.1.
