Corel's WordPerfect Office 12: Small Business Edition has all the tools an office needs--spreadsheet, word processor, presentation graphics. But how does it work with Microsoft Office files? Pretty well.

WordPerfect reads and edits Microsoft files and saves them so even the pre-installed fonts are preserved for your Microsoft-using mates. The only loose stitch is clip-art formatting: Microsoft Word puts clip art in a text box you can't easily align; WordPerfect lets you drag art anywhere on the page.
