Anyone have any comments on which open source office suite they like better? I never heard of Office Suite X before and I already have Open Office. I really would like to have Microsoft Office 2010 but just don't want to fork out the bucks right now unless someone can point me to a good sale. I need it mainly for updating my resume in word format atm. Course using excel spreadsheets etc. is necessary too.
I was about to install Office Suite X and Avira seemed to notice some spyware so I removed it and I've temporarily halted the install. Any thots would be appreciated.

Considering I'm having a heck of a time finding a home page for it and virtually no information about it other than that download site you linked to, I'd stay away from it. Plus on that site it says it was developed from the Open Office source code. So why not just use Open Office? Especially since you already have Open Office.

One Dead Giveaway about what your getting is when it says "Free Download". Anytime you see "Free Download" there is always some kind of "gotcha". It means what it says. Free to "Download" but not necessarily to have for free.
thanks, like I said, I'm mostly interested in updating my resume and looking for some nice templates that are compatible with word. I wish I could afford to just run out and purchase Office 2010, life would be so much easier, lol. Thanks all.
