I've used Open Office at home for years and it works just fine. Heck, I get MS office through the Microsoft Home Use Program for $9.95 and I haven't bothered to buy it as it's $10 I don't need to spend.
It's not exactly MS office and it doesn't have the ribbon bar and conversions aren't perfect...but it's $0. I have regular MS office on my work laptop, so when I need something converted perfectly, I can always use that.
