To read MSword I like very light appplication antiword. Just antiword -t
filename. You can create documents with many different programs. Abiword
is really light.
Gnumeric works wonders with Excell format.
Powerpoint documents are little bit more difficult to read. You can use
tonic-point viewer but it requires Java which I do not have on my
system. There is also a program called present.
To be frank with you I use for all my needs TeX except for the
spreadsheets although even for that you may use TeX.
All of the above combined is 100 times smaller than Open Office.
