Is FreeBSD simple enough for Novices, Will FreeBSD accept Office 98 + Publisher?

How difficult is FreeBSD to use in place of MS windows, say compared to 
Apple OSX?  I believe it may be able to run Offide 98; can Office 98 
with Publisher be ran on FreeBSD?  I want to use FreeBSD to compose 
articles, and combine them into a Book for publication, as a Home Office 
Operation by a person with little experience beyond windows.   In 1995, 
I took a MicroComputer Operating Systems course in Windows 3.11 and DOS 
6.22.   I have used Windows 95, 98, and XP Home & upgraded to Media Edition.
