    Microsoft Word is is a proprietary word processing application from Microsoft. It is not a generic software classification. It is not free.

    You appear to want a free word processing application that can read and write Microsoft Word documents. There are several:
    • Text Edit (already installed on your Mac)
    • OpenOffice.org
    • NeoOffice (Java-based version of OpenOffice.org)
    Pages, the word processing application in the iWork suite, is not free.
