I have been using OpenOffice which works fine.
There are some power users that might use SOME of the Office features but 99% just use basics available in ANY word processor
Yep, $100 a year for 5 licenses of Office that would cost you $400 a year to buy, per license, if you got the same suite shrink-wrapped as office2013. So, in 20 years you'd break even on just buying 5 copies outright.
