compatibilty with m$ office

What is the most compatible open source office system with m$ office. I'm sure someone told me that koffice was pretty good. What isn't it compatible with? imho, it's office that is one of the main reasons that not so many people use linux
[that wasn't meant to start a big m$ debate <ducks><grins>]

star office is the best as far as compatability. there is an older free version at version 5.2 i think. open office is a little easer to use, but has some issues with importing and saving M$ docs.
