I switched only about 9 months ago (really wish I didn't spend all the money upgrading my office to Microsoft Office 2007!) While Microsoft Office 2007 was a huge improvement over 2003, the new layouts required a new learning curve and Outlook is still completely unstable, Excel takes forever to open, and other annoyances... Open Office was an easy enough transition and has been FAR more stable and I can get into the programs instantly. I plan on donating some money to the Open Office project each year. I kind of wish Sun tried harder to sell StarOffice with support as a Microsoft replacement, something that would give this project a little boost (although things are currently great there's a few features missing, spreadsheets are much harder to work with, i'm still too used to powerpoint etc.).
