I use OO under Linux, but there are some quirky things that it won't do. If
however you just have a srtaightforward document with no macros or the like
being used, there is no problem saving it in Word. You can do it in the
"Document Type" in the "Save As" dialog. Or you can save it in Rich Text
format, which will open in any word processor, e.g WordPerfect, while
preserving all formatting and font settings.
OO is trying hard to be like Word, even to the point of having its own version
