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.
