I'd like to use OpenOffice. Unfortunately, documents I get look different in Office and OpenOffice. I suppose documents I write in OpenOffice will look different if opened with Office. I'm not in the mood for gambling with my grades :-)


Since OpenOffice is the more compatible of the two (in that it will open .docx files whereas Office 2007 will not open .odt files, etc), and since OpenOffice will produce PDF files which look the same when viewed on any computer (indeed, that very function is the entire purpose of "Portable Document Format" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portable_Document_Format ) ... then by your own stated policy you should of course use OpenOffice and not office 2007.
