I have been using OO.o for several years, and find it every bit as good (in some cases, better) than its MS Office counterpart. Many different foreign government agencies are adopting it, from large German cities to Australian governmental agencies.
For the most part, spreadsheets and text documents are compatible with MS file types, though I have found some problems with spreadsheet macros and inserted content in word processing texts.
I note that the next version, due sometime early summer, will contain an improved database that will compete with Access! YEAH!!!!!!!!!!
All-in-all, I never hestite to recommend it to anyone except the extreme power user.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
