NeoOffice/OpenOffice

(Link)

Point this out and float the idea of using NeoOffice and OpenOffice as a way to have compatibility across platforms. :-) And, as someone else pointed out, try opening it up in NeoOffice just to see if it works. It would be highly amusing if a non-Microsoft product was more compatible with a Microsoft product than some other Microsoft product.

We tried using Neooffice during the last round of proposal writing and eventually had to give up on it due to a few incompatibility issues. For one thing, we collaborate with a fair number of people outside of the office, so we were always going to have to import and export, and it didn't go well, with figures and everything.
