What is the reason to use RH 7.0?
Open Office is a very good Office package despite it uses a lot of resources.

OpenOffice.org is probably the most likely to be compatible with MS Office formats. KOffice is excellent too, and has the added advantage that you don't have to install the entire suite; it's slightly less good at reading and writing MS Office documents though.

Koffice has come a long way but hasn't gotten to the writing aspect of M$ proiprietary .doc format. I downloaded Abiword for that reason. Everything else seems to be a good thing, though (BTW, with the bloat - less than Win Office - Koffice is a better choice for the most part).
