Apache Open office is very good, but I prefer its distant cousin (the free) Libre Office. [Apache didn't like some spreadsheet formulae that I'd created in MS Office, but Libre is as sweet as a nut.] I've used this for several years now, and found it excellent.

BTW if you decide to d/l it, don't forget that the local help files are in a separate d/l file.

https://www.libreoffice.org/download/download/ [version 6.4.6 will be fine (and more stable) for most users.]

I moved to office 365 from my now ancient office 2009, my main reason is probably outlook, the rest of the suite is a bonus.

I'd go with Libreoffice I've used it for some years now and have yet to find a M$ file it cannot open from the Office suite, OK no Outlook but who cares about that there are plenty of free email products.

You also get 1TB of storage with fast access. I can upload to OneDrive @ > 100Mbps. Some of the other online storage vendors I trialled were very sluggish in comparison.  :)

Yeah it was quite convenient, I signed up for the 1tb space and within a few weeks was like I need the new office well I have it now anyway. :)
