Is your company looking for a cheap or free alternative to MS Office?

There is a cool list of 7 alternatives to MS Office over at Hungry Hackers. One of them is not available for Linux but the other 6 are.  If you haven't tried out Open Office or Star Office I highly recommend them even if you aren't planning on switching to a Linux Desktop.  Google Docs and Zoho are also excellent Cloud Based options if your company will allow it.
