No, unfortunately not. Most here who have not used wine, vmware or virtualbox
with word or gone to Mac have tried to push the openoffice or other open-source
word processors to get the feature. Often we are directed to mindmapping
programs by those who do not use outliners, but it is a different kind of tool.
Outliners follow the mindmappers by giving it a structure. Mindmappers are the
inductive idea finding tools, which are then followed by the outliners. Those
who have been using the outliners a long time also use it as a mindmapping tool
quite effectively in the same manner. Only difference is that mindmappers are
picture graphic and outliners still hail from the text only word processors. 
FreeMind or Freeplane are neat cross platform mindmappers. Freeplane is a
Freemind brance by the original developer; it exports to openoffice with
Headings, but no outliner :-(. Export the OOo odt to doc and then import with
Apple Pages '89 or Word :-).
