    not the best for netbooks, its actually quite a hog on resources.

    Open Office I find is better than Excel

    Course they did....not!
    I saw notebook and saw netbook, although it should read notepad actually. :thumbsup:

    Abiword which is a small software about 5 megs in size and can save to many formats like word format and linux format, better for just word processing since openoffice is a complete setup

    As above ,you may like to try Abiword . I downloaded this a while back but havn't tried it yet .
