Now I am switching our campus to LibreOffice, and with its ability to save
to OOXML I have another option which leads me to my question.  From a purely
technical perspective of interoperability and document fidelity, would MS
Office users be better off saving word processing, spreadsheets, and
presentations in the legacy MS formats or in the OOXML formats?  In other
words, which filters in LO are more compatible with MS?

At the moment, go "Legacy" format, i.e. Word/Excel/Powerpoint 97. The
OOXML filters really don't cut it just yet in lots of situations,
especially with roundtrip conversions of tables, image placements, and
headers, big documents, etc, just as a few examples off the top of my
head from the bug reports. Work is being done to improve the OOXML
filters though, and performance when importing / exporting, by moving
the filters to C++ rather than having to depend on Java and XSLT processing.
