The reason to choose this office suite over LibreOffice is stability; while it's missing a lot of features, compatibility, customization, and other improvements in LibreOffice, crashes are very unusual.  I keep both on my machine depending on my needs.

Comepared to MS Office it't a bit of a dull knife. (For the average cook a dull knife does everything with a bit more effort.) OOO does everything you could possible need that MS office does (and a few very great things that MS office doesn't do, like editing PDF in the draw module).It only lacks some of the sharp WOW effects that MS office has. So if you want all functionality minus a few bells and whistles go for Open Office. If you think a a bit of eye candy and a slightly easier to use interface is worth several hundred $$ then shell out. I use the portable version at work because they use OOO 2.3 and the portable version gives me what I need.

OpenOffice 3.2 fixed the last bit of compatibility issues for me. And, unlike Steve, I'm just now uninstalling MSOffice and am totally dumping that bloatware overpriceware for good. It's not that MSOffice is worse or better, it's just that it's soooo 1990's to be paying for a wordprocessor, especially one that is based on a proprietary document format.

I've tried OpenOffice and I think it's great for 80-90% of the basic work that needs to be done with .doc and .xls documents. However, I occasionally have documents I need to view/edit that just don't render properly in OpenOffice.

I would still use OpenOffice but only as a backup. I don't have it on my USB stick but I might end up putting it on there anyway...but I work on computers where almost every single one has MS Office on it.

Unlike alot of people here, I don't think OpenOffice is better than MS Office....
I'm simply not prepared to pay the price of netbook to do what my computer should be able to do out of the box.

I set up computers for lots of people. I've installed Open Office on every one and most of them thought they were using MS-Office. It's not as flasy looking but it does every thing 99% of the people neeed. Today. for the first time, I installed it on a Mac.

Extremely unhappy with this program. Tried to install it on my flash drive twice; first time it didn't work & deleted itself when I removed the drive, 2'nd time it corrupted my drive. I can't even format the poor thing now. I'm sticking to AbiWord & I urge anyone considering this piece of junk to do the same.
