    you can have it co-exist on the same machine as M$ Office. Only thing you have to do is tell OOo not to become the default app for M$ Office files.

    As for features, it certainly does have all the features, but it is redisgned. OOo does take a little getting used to though; but it's been my experience that once people get used to it they like the layout much better than M$ Office. Don't get me wrong, OOo isn't hard to use at all... it's just a little different than the M$ Office so many people are used to. The only feature that I am aware is lacking, is the use of macros. But that was with 1.03... I'm not sure what has been done with it in 1.1 *EDIT: OOo 1.1.0 does support Macros now, and supports them well :)

    Compatablity is also great. I read and write M$ docs almost daily and I havn't had a problem yet. Athough I prefer the standard OOo file types, it's not a problem to open and save docs as M$ Office file types.

    I'd just recomend that you co-install OOo with M$ Office until you are comfortable with it and hopefully it will completely replacce M$ Office for you as it has for me. OOo is free and doesn't take up much HDD space, so you don't have anything to loose by trying it. :)

    i have loads of job of writing huge articles or other project work for my college/hospital and i use OOo on my Linux install for all this work now.
    i simply love the feature where it offers me loads of words while i m typing. i don't know what that this feature is called but on 99% of times it guesses correctly as to what i want to write and its just a hit of enter key from there. it has reduced my writing times to around 70-75% of what it used to be.
    MS should see this feature. i know the "Auto Complete" feature is there in Word too, but it doesn't offer lot of words and i am too lazy to configure it specially for this job.
