No, there is a Windows version of StarOffice.
Reads and writes Word files, too.

Free for home use, something like $50 for corporate.
Be prepared for a LONG download, or buy a CD. It is a massive integrated package, with database, spreadsheet, presentation, HTML, and bitmap and vector graphics sections. Took me 11 hours to download at 28.8.

I use it at home.
I have to, for file compatibility. I need to be able to read Word 98 files, and I only have Word 95 at home.

I'm not %100 happy with it, but I haven't crashed it hard or had it corrupt a file. I only use it at home, for less challenging projects, so I don't know how stable it is under stress. The graphics modules are very, very nice.

I have no financial connection to StarDivision.
