No and yes.

Others have already responded, no doubt, but the short answer
is that is cross-platform.

One of the reasons that I like it is that, at the office, I
can use the same program to work on a document whether I'm
booted into Windows or Linux (without the bother of Wine
or the expense of X-over Office).

Another reason is that, at home, I run Linux exclusively.

But no, I don't have an environment where I'm actually
encouraged/expected to work in Linux -- I just do, sometimes
when I happen to be documenting for the use of our products
on Linux... or at least I'm beginning to. At home, I do
have a toy Mac iBook (from early this century), and I might
install OOo there, too, just for fun... and to get the dust
off the iBook. :-)

Next frontier, Solaris.
