I think you mean Microsoft Office 2007. saint19 is right that you will need to purchase a product key. If you don't need very advanced functionality, you could try Office Web Apps, which is free for personal, non-commercial use.

Yes, but OpenOffice can be daunting for inexperienced users. Personally, I love MS Office 2010.

I believe if you have only used the trial of Office 2007, you can still download the trial of Office 2010. However, it will only hold you over for 60-days at which point it will expire...

Office 2007 was more the Vista of Office, than Office 2010 is. Personally, I love 2010. I'm really loving the Quick Steps feature in Outlook in particular. Also nice to see that Microsoft finally standardized on the ribbon UI in all of the office programs.

^What The_Prophecy said. (I'll let the moderators fight it out, just adding that I also like the new options for working w/images in Word 2010. You can't even get a decent clipart collection in OpenOffice.)
My apologies to christin; this is getting a little off-topic.

+1. I do a lot of power points, and the new Text effects,etc are very helpful. Same goes with Word.
