Are OpenOffice.org and Microsoft Office compatible?

Yes they are compatible! OpenOffice.org reads Microsoft office files fine, including the older office 2003 formats, and the newer xml based (2007+) ones. There maybe a few odd formatting things you need to tweek if you save from openoffice.org to Microsoft office, but generally it works fairly well. If you want the best compatibility, then try go-oo, a fork of openoffice that has better compatibility, even with stuff like Microsoft VBA macros. So yes, it works fine. And of course, openoffice always works better on Linux!

Also, don't forget when saving to change 'odf' to Microsoft office. But you can change the default save format to msoffice if your using it frequently

How do you download OpenOffice.org Writer without all the other open office software package?

OpenOffice.org Writer can be installed on its own. This is an option available in many Linux distributions. Consult your Linux documentation and package manager for your download options. If you find a single package, you are out of luck. If you find separate packages for Writer, Base, Calc, Impress, etc. (like in Ubuntu), Install just Writer and its pre-requisits.

However, the Windows editions install all components by default.

[Moved editorial comments to the "Discussion" section]

check the wikipedia entry, i don't think it can be downloaded standalone:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Openoffice_writer

copied from wikipedia:

OpenOffice.org Writer is the word processor component of the OpenOffice.org software package. Writer is a word processor similar to Microsoft Word, with a roughly equivalent range of features. As with the entire OpenOffice.org suite, Writer can be used across a variety of platforms, including Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows, Linux, FreeBSD and Solaris. Released under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public Licence, Writer is free software.

What are the differences between Microsoft Word and OpenOffice?

The two programs are very similar. For the record, I use Open Office 40 hours a week at work, and find it stable, feature rich, and easy to use. For a good article assessing the differences in detail, go to http://software.newsforge.com/software/05/06/14/2137222.shtml?tid=152&tid=93 I know that's a long link, but it goes to a fairly comprehensive article on the topic at Newsforge. Bookmark Newsforge while you're there. Great place to catch up on things.

Open Office is open source. If you purchase word etc, you will get support for it in the package (like anyone ever uses that). Open Office is free! You pay for any support you want outside of forums. Realistically, they operate in a very similar way.

It depends on the speed of your connection. However - it shouldn't take more than a few minutes. The first time I downloaded it (version 1.5 !) was with an old dial-up modem and it only took six minutes then. The latest version (3.3) took less than 3 minutes with a cable modem.

How do you type in the margin of your Microsoft Word document?

The best way that I have found is to create a text box with no border in the margin, and type in it. Or are you talking about making comments in the margin? That would be done by using mark-ups.
