    I think the OP is specifically looking for something that will open iWork docs on his Mac without buying iWork apps again

    I don't think Office or any of the free versions (Open Office, etc) will do this without exporting them from iWork as a different format first

    Ah, misunderstood the OP, as s/he was using "opening word docs" describing his/her problem.
    Anyway, if those text documents are created with Pages, then you have to buy Pages for Mac OS X for another 20 USD.

    You can buy it directly from the Microsoft site
    It isn't available on the Mac App Store
