    StarOffice

    It looks like the next version of office is going to be even more bloated and a bigger installation/registration hassle than its predecessors and the version after that will probably be .NET based using c#. Why not switch to StarOffice?

    compatability and ease of use, as in if the office uses office it's easier to use the same version at home.

    the last version of staroffice i used handled the conversion of spreedsheets poorly. highly formatted word docs get messed up to.

    As MaryJ says, compatibilty is the main point, then easy of employing experienced staff, product knowledge (and awareness, I guess!), corporate momentum (difficult to get everyone to agree to change), cost for lagrer companies.
