Since about beta 1.9.79 or thereabouts I'd say.  That was a couple of months
ago. :)  I use only OpenOffice personally and nobody even notices.
Only issue is MS Access at the moment.  (and perhaps some of the
goofier Powerpoint transitions.. :)

I think they already did, and are continuing to do so. I love just
saving stuff as PDF by clicking a button. Lots of smaller features too
that just make more sense in Oo.
