My computer has - 1gb of Ram – Intel(R) Pentium(R) D 2.80GHz. Should I install Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 32bit or 64bit or Ubuntu 13.04 32bit or 64bit?

I know ubuntu has a word processor, but am I correct in assuming that I can install MS office 2007 on ubuntu?

With specs like those I would say 12.04 32bit but you might want to try something lighter like Lubuntu or Kubuntu.

As for your second question I want to say no. You can open the documents with MS office formats using LibreOffice but I'm not sure that you can install that in Ubuntu.

+1 for your suggestion to install Lubuntu or Kubuntu. and yes He can install MS Office 2007 using Wine. – Saurav Kumar Oct 9 '13 at 20:52
Okay thanks. I didn't know that. I don't really like doing things with Wine anyway. – troylatroy Oct 9 '13 at 20:53
