Thank You.

Thanks to that tip, I downloaded OpenOffice For Mac.

I am happy with the Mac Mini I've been using for several months now in all respects except its word processing software. MS Word For Mac & AbiWord both fall way short of WordPerfect, which I had been using at work & at home since 1989 -- starting with version 2.0 & progressing right on up to version 12 or so before I gave up on Windows & went with Mac Mini.

I'm optimistic about the word processing software included with OpenOffice. Even if it doesn't measure up to WordPerfect, it looks at 1st glance like a big improvement over MS Word For Mac & AbiWord.

We'll see, eh ?

Meanwhile, I need to go back to that free software web site & see if they have something for Mac that works like MS Money or Quicken for keeping my personal checking account all squared away month by month.

Thanks again for the free software tip.
