Is there a particular reason you want to use MSOffice rather than OpenOffice? If it's for word processing you'll find that OO can do anything MS Word can do and a lot more.

If you create tables with OOffice and then reopen those tables in MS Word you will find that some of the tables are scrambled. I need MS Office for my university , since to submit my assignments to my tutor in *.doc or *.rtf format such that he can open them with his MS Office suite.
