I have had Libre Office installed under Windows 10 on several machines. Open Office will install, too.
With regard to Office 2007 having reached end of life and security updates ceasing, to be perfectly honest that would not concern me very much at all except in regard to Outlook 2007, which has constant interaction with cyberspace. All other Office files are either created by the user or, if they have anything even vaguely current as far as antivirus/security suite, scanned upon download and blocked before they can even make it on to a machine if compromised. I can't remember if auto-execute of scripts is turned off in 2007 or not, but it is in 2010. I think 2007 has protected mode on by default, too, but again I can't be certain because I stopped using 2007 very shortly after 2010 came out.
The probability of getting an infection via an MS-Office file on machine with even fairly basic, but current, "shield" technology is very, very small. It's infinitesimally small if one only downloads or detaches files from trusted sources to begin with.

. . . the presumption of innocence, while essential in the legal realm, does not mean the elimination of common sense outside it. The willing suspension of disbelief has its limits, or should.
