Of course, uncleV. We make our own individual decisions. But IMHO, switching to LibreOffice is inevitable unless OO users want to get stuck to a deprecated version or compile OO from source (and even then it is not guaranteed to work seamlessly in PCLOS).
And for me, the sooner it's done, the sooner we can get on with other things. I cannot tell you with certainty of LibreOffice's stability and compatibility with Microsoft Office files (since I do not keep those archived on my computers) but I am certain that it is compatible with OO (at least the Writer and Calc files are).
I hope you can make the switch soon.
