"The free and open source office suite OpenOffice.org might be a killer app for many, but its inability to properly display documents created in the proprietary Microsoft Office formats hinders its widespread acceptance in multi-OS business environments with many legacy .doc and .xls files."
Since when? Have you tried it recently? It even reads (not writes) .docx and .xlsx! I do my homework in Calc all the time, and save it as .xls.
