I will likely get flamed, but IMNSHO you'd be better off with Corel
Office.  Since I learned spreadsheets on Lotus, the tansition to Quatro
was seemless.  I gave Excel a chance and found I needed the manual to do
anything.  Quatro graphs whatever I need.  Personally, I've found
Presentation to be more transparent (easier to learn) than Powerpoint as
well as storing pictures in smaller files.  Only when dead would I
consider using word on a regular basis.

Again, it's a personal choice.  I actually have to have both on my Win95
machine as grant templates and other university forms are set for word.
