Default office alternative

Fed up with paying microsoft a yearly sub just to create, open and edit docs you never used to pay for office on a yearly basis

Anyhow, I know you can edit online via onedrive and can also use google docs but (I assume) have to be online for those?

What's the best free office programme that will open and allow editing of existing word docs, preferably without having to convert etc. Nothing fancy, just very basic formatting etc

Open Office (https://www.openoffice.org/) is free and works fine with all MS Office format documents.

You can still buy the normal non-subscription office software. Office 2019 only works on windows 10 though, so you’d have to search out office 2016 if you’re on anything older. Support for office 2016 lasts until 2025 I think.
