Hi
There are forums to help deal with issues with OpenOffice jsut as with anything else that's OpenSource.

If you have problems with AOO or an old version of OOo then it's worth trying some of the other suggestions in the poll. LibreOffice is the most similar but none of them would be completely alien to you. It takes time to switch from MSO to any listed but switching between any of the ones listed is fairly easy. I think that is the key strength of all of them.
Regards from
Tom

They all seem the same to me, for what I do, but I'm using LibreOffice right now.

LibreOffice. Calligra is looking promising, it biggest show stopper for me is not being able to save in MS formats. I've been hearing good things about Apache OpenOffice but think I stick with LibreOffice.

I use LaTeX and emacs for word processing. I can't get used to the What You See Is Not Exactly What You Get. I like what you get is what you wanted. I like to be able to add some non-bold text next to some bold text, without having to wrestle the computer. I like to able to know what font the text is in without needing a 6foot 100dpi display screen. I like to think about the content not the formatting. I like the result to be stunningly beautiful.

Bloated? But functionality is the whole point of an office suite. You don't get functionality without size. If we did, we'd all still be using vi and nano. But, I think you have stated exactly what the best solution for you is, and I am glad you can see clearly what works for you is good! (Meaning abiword and gnumeric).

I still miss a couple of items from MS Office, but with my discovery of "Alternative Find and Replace for Writer", I am a pretty happy camper. LibreOffice seems to be doing a proper job of taking over, and making progress, where OOo left off. They look sharp.
