Libre Office (which I've been using for about an hour so far) looks to be a
well-featured and powerful suite, and it doesn't have the dangerous bug
which caused me to stop using Open Office (OO, at least the version I had,
will open encrypted Word documents, but on saving silently converts them to
unencrypted -- nasty, since they were encrypted for a reason.)

Unfortunately, I have already found bugs in Libre Office Writer:

1) There is no way (that I have found) to insert the date and time as text;
the only option is to insert them as a field, meaning that the next time
the document is opened, the date and time shown would be when it was
re-opened, rather than when it was last edited which is what I want. I had
to take the file back into MS Word just to add the date and time, but I
want to be rid of Word.

2) Although it seems to have correctly picked up my locale (UK) from
Windows, the same is not true of date format; even though the formats shown
are European format, the actual field code inserted was American.

3) I defined a template for International format (YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM), but
although I clicked the Add button and the change seemed to be accepted, but
the new template just vanished.
