A few weeks ago there was a thread about which software package to use for writing. In that thread I expressed reservations about other programs' interoperability with MS Word. All of the Linux-based WP programs that I had tested in 2000 fell short in that regard.

It looks like some packages have been making progress since then. Here is a review of StarOffice (and a brief mention of OpenOffice, from which StarOffice was derived) which touts StarOffice's interoperability as excellent, at a much lower price than MS Word's.
