...provided it's a *very* basic document with almost nothing in the
way of special features like formatted sections, tables, images, and
other imbedded stuff. I've had zero luck with Google Docs, even on my
desktop. If you *create* the documents with Google Docs, you're fine,
but trying to view and work with documents created with Word or OOo is
an exercise in futility & frustration.

Your best bet is Turbo Easy Debian for Everyone
