Microsoft Microsoft Office 2013 has received its pricetags. Home and Student - Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote - is $140, while Home and Business, which adds Outlook into the mix, is $220. Professional jumps to a whopping $400, but adds Access and Publisher. For $100 per year, you can get the subscription version, which can be installed on up to 5 PCs (both Windows and OS X PCs). In related news, Microsoft still thinks it's 2001.

I'm a longtime Open/Libre Office user as well. And also MS Office, I've had a lot of jobs. (I prefer Libre for text and MS for spreadsheets, Excell is one of the few decent MS programs, can't use Excell on my home computers though because I only have Linux boxes at home).

LibreOffice is 100% compatible to ODF standards. And of course it is not completely compatible to MS Office, which deliberately messes with compatibility.

I just want to point out that MS-Office runs on Linux with WINE. If you really need/want a specific Excel feature I've found Office 2012 runs perfectly on Linux using WINE or CrossOver.

The folks at WINE are doing a bang-up job. The last time I installed it was about 4 or 5 years ago and for running MS Office, it was rock solid. I can only imagine that it's gotten better since then.
