Edit: Oops, realised lo wont grok XP, anyhoo...

I heard OO had been half dead for a while, adobe made some noises recently but not much happened.

Have you considered libreoffice? At least among linuxers libre's considered better.

I use it myself for light work on both linuk and miserable windors and does what I need.
(I'll admit as LO worked fine out of the box so I never got round to ever trying OO.)

- apart from the interface so far never seen any difference rendering or printing any doc/sheet created or received from elsewhere between lo & ms.

There's a full install and portable versions, easily fit both on a USB stick so either way you're covered at other sites.

Note: also threw ms interop out in favor of EPPlus - methods/info very much like ms office interop except 10000 X faster, again all results work, look & print same in both lo and miserable.

No I don't work for them,
hell, I barely do any work for myself except workin on my bicycle and sending invoices to clients.
