Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "With the release of StarOffice 8 and OpenOffice.org, and the rumors about MS Office 12, office suites are making their rounds in the press again. Microsoft's office suite is certainly the most popular on Windows, but there are competing suites from Corel and IBM. On GNU/Linux we have KOffice, GNOME Office, OpenOffice.org, StarOffice, and more. But no matter if they are free or proprietary, expensive or cheap, and regardless of what platforms they run on, the one thing that all software suites have in common is that they suck."

LaTeX is entirely inappropriate if you want your documents to have any sort of custom format. Like, say, in a business, where your documents probably have a corporate "look" that doesn't match the canned formats from LaTeX.
