I've tried StarOffice under Linux*; when saving a file in MS Word format
it loses comments, even comments that were in the file in the first
place that it read in just fine!  "Oops".

I'll be interested to see how StarOffice improves, but for now I
regard it as read-only.

  and installed it there too!
