OOo is a great attempt...but MS is famous and popular...despite all their bad programming and bugs and so on...because they just work better I think...at least in terms of Office suites hehe. I dont think OOo is a worthy competitor...its a worthy clone...that just happens to be free and frankly I cant wait to get my copy of the upcoming Office 12.

Office 12 will probably not include OpenDocument format while OOo already supports it. I think that support of standard format will make a big difference in enterprise environment.

I forgot to mention that about popularity, there are users that still use Office 97 and each version of Microsoft Office has a broken compatibility of format. For example, Microsoft Office 12 will not use MS Office 2003 xml as default.
