Hello, I want an alternative for MS Office for Windows. Preferably a free alternative. I don't wanna spend hundreds of dollars for MS office since I only use word and powerpoint.

I want an almost exact same alternative and compatible with Windows.

Hi and welcome to FpcH

You need to give Open Office a try. ..........Click Here

Looks similar to M$ Office - is compatible with M$ Office - is totally free - and no nag screens either.

Open Office will open M$ Word documents, however, if you want to save your Open Office [ free ] documents to be opened by M$ Word you will need to select "Word 97" from "Save as Type" when saving your document.

I have used this for years.

+1 for LibreOffice, however OpenOffice is a good choice as well.
