Who needs Word for word processing, specially if you consider Linux (in whatever distro) an alternative.

Just get LibreOffice (or OpenOffice) for Windows. Done. You can read and write M$ Office file formats and then some, the only thing that is missing is an equivalent for Outlook, but that might not be a loss after all. At least of Thunderbird hadn't trashed the calendar feature with one of the latest updates... :(
