    Default Windows 98 compatability

    I have just bought a laptop running on Windows 98. We want to put Word, Excel and Powerpoint on it. What software packages will run with Windows 98? And where can we buy them cheaply??

    Thanks.

    In terms of Microsoft Office, you'll be able to run recent versions without many problems. You could probably buy an OEM version of Office 97 quite cheaply.

    If you're not dependent on specifically using Microsoft Office, I would suggest OpenOffice 2.0 which you can download at http://openoffice.org - it's about as good as Microsoft Office, it's compatible with all of their documents, and it's free.
