Good enough for me...

I've been finding OpenOffice to be fine for my daily use.

Since Microsoft changed the UI in Office 2007 and on, and doesn't provide a way to go back to the old UI... I've switched to OO and sold off my Office 2007.

I have a legal copy of Office 2003, but I'm not using it any more.

I've also been putting OO on my families computers and nobody has complained.

I've been doing the same... with only minor complaints ;) (often times, I just have to help someone find where a certain feature/setting that matches what they're used to in MS Office)

For me, I use an office suite very seldom these days anyway. I will occasionally use a word processor, but I don't need very many features.

Spreadsheets are nice, but even Google Apps works in a pinch.

The other day I used OOo's presentation tool to create a poster...

All-in-all, it does the job. For me, it's a bit overkill, but since I use it so seldom, and my machine is reasonably fast, I don't mind so much.
