I'm using Star Office 5.1 under windows. I think it is the same price 
for Windows or Linux. Unless you are interested in learning an 
alternative OS and turfing MS, I would recommend just the Windows 
version. If you do want to dabble in the Unix like OS's then I do 
recommend Linux.

I am impressed with the capabilities of Star Office. It contains a 
spreadsheet, word processor, database, and the capability to read and 
write most of the competing formats. I didn't know it had a Project 
Management Component.
