2010 and 2013 are almost the same. either one will work for you. That said, you can probably find a 2010 copy fairly cheap.

Don't know about a cheap solution but I would also recommend LibreOffice. It's free and in my opinion, just as powerful as MS Office. Another alternative that I use on a daily basis are the google drive options. It took me some time to get used to it but once I did, I fell in love. It's so easy to use and accessible. I'm getting married this weekend actually. Watch the wedding at twitch.tv/s

idk I don't really like libreoffice (still better than OO but idk. I like to keep everything in one format. )

It's 100% free, google drive comes with 15 free GB but if you save the documents in their format (which you will) it doesn't take up any space.

anyone can open google docs within windows 365, and vice versa if its opened through email or what have you, and with the format google uses, 15gb is more than enough
