If you have a bit of memory and some processing power, the Open Office 
suite can read and write to the Word doc format and Excel spreadsheet 
format. Note that very heavily formatted documents and those with 
graphics may be problematic and macros do not work
cross program (though this is arguably a good thing). OOo also has a 
presentation program that can read and write Power Point format
files. Most desktop distros usually come with Open Office.
