I voted for openoffice, but IMHO the best solution is MS office 97 or 2000 on linux.

openoffice never ceases to amaze me. the functionality is probably greater than ms office. i was able to do more things in a class room assignment in OOo than my friend with MS office.

My Vote Is For... KOffice is nice for light work, and it's fast, but I do a lot on OO.o that has to translate back to MS Office at work. Seems a few of us have the same problem. Solution: get out companies to adopt Linux on the desktop? (Wanna borrow my ice skates?) Later On, Dave

Open Office, because it's so comprehensive and owing to it's improved compatibility with that other OS.

OOo of course. But I do wonder why many distribution and people are leaning towards abiword+gnumeric. I feel that some distros keep OOo just because there is no good Impress alternative.

You forgot to mention Siag Office
Maybe it isnt very used by most people, but if you have a low-end computer, it certainly is VERY valuable.

OO because although Koffice is faster by a mile, OO reads the typical m$ docs.
