Is anyone using OpenOffice.org 3 in place of Microsoft Office ... 2010? Are they really basically equal and compatible products? I need to load a office software package onto my son's new computer that he will be taking away to college, and need it to be fully functional and reliable.

Thanks for the info. Are there any problems having both MS Office and OpenOffice installed at the same time? Any issues removing OpenOffice if I decided it isn't what I want? That is, does it share any resources or files with MS Office that could potentially be made inaccessible or removed along with the application?

It doesn't share anything with MS Office but does require JRE (Java Runtime Environment) to be installed - which is included with the OpenOffice installer.
