I have on occasion used an older computer by installing Linux on it and 
that install would include Open Office or Libre Office.  Linux tends to 
run better than Windows on older hardware.  In general, I try to avoid 
proprietary software whenever possible.  I have never had occasion to 
use a Mac.  I also encourage friends & family to use open source 
software whenever possible.  About 10 years ago, I worked for a company 
that used Open Office, but I figured it was because they were too cheap 
to pay for anything they could avoid. ;-)
