    I have acquired a Mac and wondered if anyone could recommend a free Office Suite. I have a very limited knowledge of Linux systems but I hope to improve this situation soon. :)

    I'd recommend Libre Office:

    I've not used it on Mac, but I've used it on Windows and Linux and it works really well :). It's able to open anything you throw at it and is great as an every-day office suite.

    No, it was given to me and that's how it came. I know nothing about Macs or Apple stuff. Is it likely to have some sort of Apple Office Suite on it? It's all new to me. :blush:

    I was just messin with you mate. Apple stuff is linux based but quite different in a lot of ways.

    These might help,

    Ian's suggestion of Libre Office is a good choice. As good as any Windows office, cross platform and free.
