If you use Koffice 1.6.1, threr is very good ODF support. I use OOo at work 
and home for basic word processing and some spreadsheet work. All my text 
docs open and are properly formatted when opened in Kword, and my small 
number of spreadsheets open and work the same in Kspread. One of my sheets 
has some conditional formatting that even works the same between the 2 
applications. MS Office conversions are sometimes iffy in OOo, and I have yet 
to open any complex MS Office docs in Koffice.

OOo may be more "professional' but Koffice is  still very nice. My wife 
prefers it over OOo (and MS office) because it has a simpler cleaner 
interface. try both and pick what you like :)
