For me:
- KOffice for simple documents (simple letter, simple report, simple calculations in KSpread)
- for larger documents
- LaTeX for scientific reports and documents
- MS Office if no other choice

Anyway, I have to admit that MS Office 2007 features really impressive (even though it is not so stable on my computer and document compability between MS Office versions really annoying)

for comparisons sake should wine + m$ office be votable ?

or is it disqualified for not having a specific native linux binary version.

I'd say it's qualified. I mean it runs (sometimes for some people), so you can use it (sometimes in some way). Hence, it should be votable. Maybe next year?

I'd never vote for it, though. May be hard to believe but I dislike it even more than I dislike (organize the menus, god damnit!), but people who like it should be able to vote for it. There must be someone who uses it as his/her primary office suit on Linux.
