Open source versions of MS Office www.openoffice.org, from a quick look this seems really good for free software, anyone used in anger? Thoughts?

I would guess my greatest concern would be compatability with MS software.

Yup, it's a great bit of software :) There are probably quite a few threads on here if you want to read more about it :D

I've not had any compatibility problems, apart from with one Excel spreadsheet which used very complex macros - but for 99.9% of things it will work fine. :thumb:

I use MS Office at work and Open Office at home and regularly email myself docs and spreadsheets and only ever had one that didn't open in OO, that was a World cup score/ progress spreadsheet that had some very complicated formulas and macros. :)
