    Ditto, open office and Google apps. Google apps for online collaboration and OpenOffice for the meaty creating/pdf side. Works a treat, especially as Google apps works with OpenOffice native format.

    Google apps is really useful for environments that use netbooks but do not have roaming accounts (e.g. schools).

    gotta say that google docs is a horrible thing to use if you're doing a group assignment with lots of people chipping in. it's got a horrible way of reformatting things, almost as annoying as word itself and sometimes more so.

    open office though....yeh that's cool :)

    I hate OO for screwing up the formatting done in MS Word.

    I hate Word for screwing up its formatting when opened in OpenOffice. :p

    That said, I've yet to try the new OpenDocument Format support that SP3 brought to Office 2007...
