Will this question be international?  or is it local?  An
international survey might have questions about country and language.

Is this a single choice or multiple choice question?  Many people use
more than one.  So if the intent is a single choice, you might word
the question as: "what is your primary operating system"?

Again, is this single choice or multiple

To me the choices "Office" and "Company" seem to be the same.  So
there is a risk in the survey that users will randomly split between
those two choices. Better to have a smaller number of choices that are
clearly different, like:  Home, Work, School, Other.

The "daily" choice is quantifiable.  "with frequency" is not.  I don't
know if it is more or less than "daily".

This might be a good place to ask a series of questions along the lines of:

How important are each of the following to you.  Score 1-5, where 1 is
"not important at all" and 5 is "very important"

1. Easy to use without reading manual

2. Interoperability with Microsoft file formats

3. Open source, built and supported by a volunteer community

4. Is available in my language

5. Speed

6. Availability of free document templates

7. Availability of extensions

And so on.

The nice thing about this approach is you can then correlate the
responses for each of these questions with the demographic info (how
often do you use your computer, where do you use AOO, etc.)

That is pretty much the standard form of an opinion survey:

1) A section of demographic questions that are factual statements about the user

2) A section of opinion questions

The analysis can then correlate the opinions to the demographics, and
say things like, "Users who used AOO more than once a day were most
concerned about performance, but those who use it only once a month
are more concerned about usability".
