Is Apache OpenOffice a good program?

Home More advice Computers & Tech

I'm seriously thinking about downloading either Apache OpenOffice or LibreOffice due to the amount of writing I do. My computer didn't come with a good program, and I'm really sick of having to find a spell checker and word count (I'm very picky about how many words are on my project). I have a Windows 7 computer that came with something like Office Word but I had to buy it. We got rid of it and I have Wordpad and Notepad and neither have spell check. I'm concerned about downloading either program because I don't want to get a virus. So are these alright to download? Or should I save money up to get a good program at Wal*Mart?
