It's only sold. The best thing to do for Windows 98 is go to eBay and find a installation CD (or CD-set) for Office 97, Office 2000 or Office XP. Office 2003 requires Windows XP.
If you made 5 billion dollars out of a product like MS Office you wouldn't give it away for free either, would you?
If you want a free solution, go to www.openoffice.org and download their OpenOffice suite. It has a rather Word compatible word processor called Write.
Hope this helps.
Where can I download Microsoft Word for FRee? My computer was reformatted and I didn't get microsoft Word when I got it back. I don't want to jump through hoops to get it either. Thanks in advance.
