IBM owns LOTUS and includes it in a package called LOTUS SYMPHONY.
The price is right...it's free. (Could that be why it's not on the shelf at you favorite store?)
It is compatible with Microsoft Office files and Adobe PDF and it runs in either Microsoft Windows or Linux systems. At present it does not work with the Mac but they plan to release a Mac version shortly.
Lotus Symphony is a suite of programs including word processing, spreadsheet and presentation programs. So far, it appears to be a straight forward program, simple, clean and neat with a quick learning curve.
