Honestly tink, I'd have to experiment. I've used Google docs mainly for spreadsheets, and it gets the job done, but I don't think as easily as Office. I have some experience with Open Office, but it's been a while.

My employer installed Libre Office on new computers, but I'm "special" enough that I got to keep my version of MS Office (2007 version). Many years ago when I bought a desktop for the house, I purchased a 3-license (install on 3 computers) "student" version of MS Office. Since my DD was using the computer (and my wife's laptop), I figured we qualified.

My suggestion right now would be to try each version for at least a couple weeks if not a month. See which one "feels" right.
