Its strength: a more than correct compatibility with the file formats of Microsoft Office which brought him great success both on Linux, where Open Office is the essential office suite, only on Windows, not everyone having the means to buy the expensive suite of Redmond.
In addition to its free and compatible, Open Office is primarily a free office suite with its own open file formats and quite sufficient functionality for most users.
