"I'm about to do something that will have more than a
few people who know me thrashing around and screaming in horror.
I'm replacing a free application with one I'm paying money for.

with Microsoft Office 2010.
"Well, it wasn't like I didn't try.

Outlook, and used OpenOffice.org (OO for short) as my spreadsheet
application. It worked fine, since I wasn't doing anything
particularly advanced with Excel in the first place.
"Then I tried using OO's Writer as a replacement for Word, and
ran into one inadequacy after another."
