Another element which should be looked at is the galaxy of little softwares existing around the two tools ... A whoke ecosystem has beeen built around Word to correct issues or unusability and to develop specialized function ...
And I fear that on this side, MS Word would emerge as the winner ... I know that it's not built-in functions, but I think that these little tools are one of the reasons a lot of people won't use OpenOffice.

Thanks for the article Bruce, it's always a pleasure to read you
