My personal experience is that OO compatibility is quite good with MS-Office. At my work place we get client requirements using MS Word attachment files. 99% time I'm able to open all files using OO. I'm also aware of few schools where kids use Firefox and OpenOffice for learning purpose under Windows XP. I think organizations can now safely move to OO :D
