I'm a pro-ms office, but believe me! even ms office enthusiast has portable OO inside their flash drives. I'm one of them and I'm also promoting it.
Just a campaign...that most people will do ignore.
yup they will ignore it..
Well we believe in Free n Open though we use propriety stuffs that too free many times ..
Well, remember, it's not OOo anymore... what was it again? LibreOffice?

Thank you Ginzon, either way advertising doesn't influence any decision for me, i have used both, but MS office suits my needs and i have nothing against LibreOffice.
I'll add this link for you guys to read on ArsTechnica (and do read the comments by users there...there are some very interestting points brought out):
If anyone's saying this is FUD, then I'd say that even OOo supporters or rather 'fanboys' (coz not all are guilty of it) spread much FUD against MS Office and other products by MS. There's a saying that "all is fair in love and war"...
Back to business, I'd say I've never liked OOo except it's price tag...it's a personal preference thingy...one that even I myself can't comprehend, especially seeing that I use such software for basic writing purposes only. Something about MS Office just keeps me 'glued' to it (and nope it's not just the 'dreaded' Ribbon) and with there exist legit ways for me to use the trial for a good period of time ('re-arm' trick), I don't see any reason to switch (yet). I've lost my MS Office ISO thanks to a reformat but nowadays, the built-in WordPad seems to fit the bill for what I need it to do...except for not having the likes of PowerPoint. Google Docs fills that gap for a while now while I wait for LibreOffice and see what it brings onto the table.
They call me the mysterious one...
my motto is...when it's hot, chill baby
yup agreed bcoz most of the people have started usage their first Office suite with Microsoft somehow...
Yup but seriously the price tag of OOo is great but that of MS Office is ..
LibreOffice is now by those OOo developers that ain't happy wit how Oracle took OOo to..
a misleading and deceiptive attempt from Microsoft I suppose
Errare humanum est, perseverare autem diabolicum
Open Office gets the job done for me and the price tag can't be beat. Tough luck MS!
There may be a bit of snow on the roof, but there is still a fire blazing in the hearth!
