Does Open Office do a good enough job, so if I send a document that looks like a Word document with a DOC extension, their Word program will reproduce it correctly?


There are plenty of gvt agencies and businesses around the world that have adopted OpenOffice and they don't seem to have problems with it.

For relatively non complex documents you'll have no issue at all. Get LibreOffice instead though. It is "freer": Oracle will not bug you with trademark stuff.
