I have to agree about using Open Office as opposed to Windows, even more so if you are thinking about using Office97, unless you regularly use many macros for spreadsheets.
First, OO.o, will have many new enhancements you will not have with Office97; second, OO.o may well turn out to be more compatible with later versions of Office than 97; third, OO.o already will save documents and spreadsheets in XML formats, which is what the next version of MS Office will use. Fourth, it is free, and will offer new versions as often as MS.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
