Microsoft Office alternative for Windows? [closed]

Is there something similar to Office for Windows but free? I am student living on a budget, Office is not an option at the moment.

"Try OpenOfficedotorg

Edit: Since the creation of this post, many if not most of the supporters of OpenOfficedotorg have migrated to LibreOffice, which was originally based on OpenOfficedotorg and now has a more active development than its parent project."

Search for your school through the MSDN Academic Alliance. Even if it's not free, it will be significantly cheaper (to the tune of $30 or less).

"I know it's not free, but you can get Office 2007 Ultimate for $60 if you are a student. All you need is a .edu email address. Just go to www.ultimatesteal.com.

It looks like that program is just for the US, but they have similar programs in the UK and Canada.

Thanks to Gnoupi, here is the French version."

"If your school does not offer a cheap education version of office, Microsoft does make a $70 home and student edition if you need maximum compatibility.

EDIT: Newegg mentions a 3 user licence. So maybe you can get 3 people to go in on one.
