It's over at http://www.openoffice.org and will do fine for most people.
As to the unreadable CDs, they could be made by DirectCD or INCD. To get them working again, install that software.
I have a Dell optiplex gx270 with a new xp pro after having to reformat hard drive. Lost some of the programs that came with the computer (ex family member installed when I wasn't home). Due to hijack I had to reformat to get online with dsl but had no os cd. I got the new win xp pro as oem so no support. I lost the acdsee that was on the computer & have no cd or floppy. Now, none of the cd's I made previously will run even with the acdsee download (trial for 45 days). Can I transfer programs from my old Pentium 3with ME to this computer with the xp pro? It will be a few months before I can buy acdsee. Also, I found that my copy of Office 2000 was a pirate copy from same ex family member & was cause of hijack. I removed from system, again, have to wait a while til I can get oem office. Any advice on what I can do in the meantime?
