I can make a certain case for absolutely not.  Myself, I'm considering
strongly going back to Windows for work, I've run into too many instances
where OO has not given me the correct info.  this is very important when
I'm looking at a quote from a supplier, and the fields with multiplication
are not multiplied.  Also, checkboxes don't come across, and I'm sure there
are others.  While I believe Linux to be the superior OS, I don't believe
Star Office, or Open Office are up to the level of MS Office.

Wine is cool, but wouldn't it make more sense to switch to OpenOffice.Org
instead, you can still open and save in M$ format so it should be
interoperable with your current files, and it runs natively in Linux.
