RE: 100% compatible
When applying for a job, 95% of all companies/agencies want your resume emailed to them in MS Word Format. Sending them a PDF file is as good as never getting called for an interview. Ridiculous yes, however it is reality, at least here in the US. So in reality these day, sadly, format is more important than content to business.
Why on earth would it be a problem to send your resume to a prospective employer as a MS Word Format document created by OpenOffice?
However annoying it might be, this is NOT a reason to use Microsoft Office over OpenOffice.
In fact, if you use Office 2007, and your prospective employer uses an older version of Office, then you are very likely to have a better result if you prepare your resume with OpenOffice than if you had prepared it using Office 2007 and saved it in "compatibility mode".
OpenOffce offers better compatibility that Office 2007 does.
This is actually an argument to use OpenOffice, not Microsoft Office 2007.
