Have you never heard about LibreOffice ?
Perhaps OpenOffice sound more familiar....?
OpenOffice have been the "official" officesuite for Linux for many years, and have been popular also on Windows systems.
LibreOffice was forked (Wiki, Fork) from OpenOffice in 2010, and now that OpenOffice seams to be "dead", LibreOffice can be considered the successor of OpenOffice.
