First of all, using any editor to hand-create documents instead of an office product is just dumb. I'm guessing most of those posters are either trying to show you how 1337 they are, don't make any documents some big 'suit' would see/read, or they spend far too much time doing something the long way.
Second, MS Office is the obvious choice (which is why it is winning, and its not the trolls that are picking it). It doesn't crash, you can turn clippy 'off', and its pretty straightforward to use (unless you are doing something complex, which is usually unnecessary). None of the other suites come close to the user-friendliness nor stability of MS Office. If you are someone that requires constant use of an office suite, you are someone with a Windows box and MS Office.
No, I'm not trolling, just go find a publishing company that uses any of the other Office suites.
