I used Open Office for a short time in the past. (quite a few years ago) It's supposedly very compatible with Office-created documents

 

Another alternative is Google Docs,

Several alternatives exist:

Why should I use Apache OpenOffice?

LibreOffice is a powerful office suite

And the 'step child' of the bunch.

WPS Office aka Kingsoft

And just because I saw this while getting the links for you.
