Just because its free doesn't make it better, it just means its better value, it does have numerous limitations compared with MS Office.
However StarOffice (by the same people who make OpenOffice) costs around £50 and as far as I'm aware has no major differences comapred with MS Office, so this may well be a better (if not cheaper) alternative.
