, you can get a FREE version of either OpenOffice or LibreOffice that is designed to install on a thumb/flash drive.
Edit: I notice you can also get a portable version of Sigil ebook editor.
+1 I use several portable apps. I have them installed locally, but on a separate partition. Keeps things nice and orderly on my hard drive. I keep them backed up (with Synctoy) to a flash drive that I can unplug and take with me to any computer.

I got mine through the HUP as well. I do love Office, but I wouldn't have it if I'd had to pay full price. Not when there are other options like Glen mentioned. It would be hard to part with OneNote, though. Love my OneNote.
