For those of you who like using FREE and legit software, plenty of viable alternatives out there. Always a good MS beta flying around (apart from Windows 7 7057 build which WAS and STILL IS crap and unstable). Windows 7 rc1 is downloadable and a pleasure to use, runs until Aug next year. Open Office is a freeware alternative to Office, although I believe there is a Office 2010 beta out there somewhere as well. If any one knows of any good free software which actually does do the job well than please feel to post here!
