I have had a very good experience working with Office 2k3 and I am definitely looking forward to Office 12 to come out. It looks pretty intriguing to me. Right now I am using 1.9.125 and so far it has crashed on me only twice and I have filed the bug reports. But other than those crashes I have had no probs none whatsoever especially using Writer and swapping back and forth between Word and ODT formats. I think its a great suite but nowhere near as polished or as fast as MSOffice.
