I would not recommend running a mixed environment with some people
using Word and others Writer. Writer's support of the Word (.doc)
format is good, but not perfect. Occasionally, document formatting
will get corrupted. I don't have any experience with Word's support of
the format native to Writer (.odt), but I've seen Excel's support of
the ods format and it is unusable. Consider getting everyone on

Writer is not a clone of Word: Writer do similar things (process
complex documents) than Word, but on different ways. For example,
Writer is heavily based on the proper use of styles and have an user
interface easy to use, but not easy to learn... But once you know how
everything work, it offers you a really powerful tool.
