    10 years has become the technical lifespan.
    I've been using LibreOffice for the last 10 years. Not a power user, so it works for what I need. It's open-source and free to use.
    Two downsides:
    1) Updates are not automatic (I only update for a major version change)
    2) It's default save is to the open-source format. You have to "Save As" and select your required format (.doc, .docx, .xls, .xlsx, etc.)

    Very similar to Microsoft Office but not as powerful.
