OpenOffice can be option for not using MSOffice. It's not completely replaces MSOffice.
because still it unable to read *.docx files with correct format.
I got this problem. MSOffice shows images in *.docx files, but openOffice unable to load it. only a particular document got this problem, but not all i think. Some times alignments and fonts are completely changing.

I realize this isn't a suite, but I think Abiword is the best. Openoffice is too bloated!

Do yourself the favour.

Raju. Download the Evermore suite as a trial. The thing works, it's written in Java and you get it in both Linux and Windows. Just get it. It will solve your problems.

Open Office can open & save docx and xlsx documents, but you need version 3.11. I tried 3.0 & 3.1 and they only red but could not save, but 3.11 works perfect.

Thank God for Open Office. If it wasn't for Open Office, I couldn't use Linux at work, at least not for everything like I do right now.

I mostly do development but I get MS docs sent to me all the time. I'd hate to have to fire up VirtualBox every time I wanted to read those.

For my needs Open Office is fine. But for myself and writing my own documentation, it's either plain text files or Latex. Nothing works or looks better than Latex.

The problem with images is because M$Office embeds the images in a propietary way which allows it to show the images even if the actual image files aren't next to the document. If you need to open documents with images you need to make sure that the image files themselves were placed in the same directory that the document is in.
