Open Office is a free, open-source word processing suite available for Windows, Mac OSX, Linux and Unix. The ".odt" file extension stands for "Open Document Text" and is the default file extension for the Open Office Word Processor. Open Office also supports other file formats, including the Microsoft Word format (.doc). You can use the Open Office software to convert .odt files to .doc files.
