If you're used to working in MS Word, will be reasonably familiar, but much more powerful. Many of the nagging problems of MS Word, such as the automated numbering and master document corruption, are solved in OO.o. In addition, OO.o is more style-oriented in every aspect.

"Down, set down your liquor and your girl from off your knee;
For the wind has come to say, 'You must take me while you may,
If you'd go to Mother Carey (Walk her round to Mother Carey!)
We're bound to Mother Carey where she feeds her chicks at sea!'"
- Rudyard Kipling, "Anchor Song"
