I'm a little tired of seeing OOo evaluated in terms of its compatibility
with Word. Word compatibility is nice to have, but that's not part of the
mission of OOo.
If you need Word for your job, buy a copy of Word. If you want to use OOo
but you still need to read Word files that people send you, get the free
Word viewer, or use your old copies of Word you have lying around (hint:
they work fine).
