Different people, different opinions. To me Microsoft Office is useless.
Seems to be very hard to install on other operating systems than Windows
(which I don't have) and there were a few things that I failed to do in
Word that I could do easily in Writer (this was in the Sun
And LibreOffice is also useless to me since it destroys my spreadsheets, at
least one of them. Fortunately Apache OpenOffice fixed it for me, and after
fixing it, it worked well in both LibreOffice and Apache OpenOffice…
And Gnumeric is another useless program to me. It doesn't have any
features. It doesn't usually take very long before i need to do something
that Gnumeric can't do. And without macros… are you kidding?

If Microsoft Office works well for you, use it. Apache OpenOffice works
well for me (or at least better than anything else so far), so I keep using
it until I find something better. Simple as that. I don't write to
Microsoft's Office users mailing lists (if there are any) and tell them
their program sucks.
