Word 2007 is not good in ooo (even not with other words) and as long as 
you use older versions you shouldn't have too much trouble...
Tough you will have to learn another way of working as writer is a bit 
different from word... and other apps too...
I got read of xp in june when dapper came out...
And I don't regret it !!!
The only backward is when i have to use xp
i have too many problems and i don't know how i could
stand these all these years !! lol
good look
