    Since you already have MS office XP I would leave it. But for someone who does not have an office software package and does not want to pay for MS office XP Open Office is a great way to go.

    Use both. Pick the one you like best after using them for a period of time??

    Because you already have paid for Office XP, I'd say stick to it. But if you want to save some money in the future, use OpenOffice instead of upgrading to new versions of MS Office. I've used both and OpenOffice is too good to be true. The only reason I'm still using MS Office is FrontPage.
