What you request is probably impossible. Linux is an open source
distribution generally.

In addition, Microsoft has not compiled a version of MS Word to run on
Linux. The closest is probably Mac OS X, and even then you need to still
purchase MS Word separately (as well as a Mac computer for the OS).

You should look at LibreOffice. I know MS Word inside and out, but I
HATE the ribbon and switched to LibreOffice even when I'm on Wintel
computers.
