Hi,

Sorry if a stupid questions...

Is there a portable version of OpenOffice?
or
can I download Write only as this is all I use at the moment.

I also have 2 pc's one with XP and laptop with Win 7 for travelling.

Also needs to be able to read WPerfect documents - which we used at work before Word came and never changed as WP back then was a far better product.

If on PC would prefer to only have writer.

but if there is a portable version I would like the complete suite so I can relearn the other products :)

thanks for your help

J

Google for "OpenOffice portable" . Alternately consider AbiWord, a stand alone editor, without a full office suite. If you have ceased using WordPerfect, you should change all documents to another format (.odt?). I cannot answer with any certainty about WP file opening. I think OO had filters up to v3.3 but they were removed for legal reasons (I'm not certain). WP conversions can be carried out by www.zamzar.com
