LOVE staroffice 6.0 I bought it (hey, the WHOLE dang suite for 75.00?
I'm testing in internally, and so far, no real objections from users when I
pass 'em files written in Star vs. Word, excel, etc.
I've also not had any complaints when I modify a file and send it back.

I have hear some people say that they like the Star Office 6.0 a lot and 
some said that it wasn't as nice as 5.2.  I am hoping to get Star Office 
6.0 soon to try it out myself.  I like the Open Office, but it doesn't 
have any clipart, templates, or extra fonts.  WordPerfect is still one 
of the best wordprocessors around.
