There are other options as well, apart from OpenOffice itself and KOffice, where one can enjoy full, proper support for ODF format.

A government, not a business could conceivably convert all archived documents and require all new documents to be created in ODF but there is no way that such an effort would save the government money.

As for KOffice it is not a full alternative to MS Office. It's more of an Office light.
