I'm successfully using the RPM distribution of OpenOffice 3.1
available from the openoffice.org website. I'm even using it on CentOS
4 machines and it's working OK!

They even include an openoffice.org3.1-redhat-menus RPM that will do
the proper GNOME/KDE integration in RHEL/CentOS based systems.

I tested opening .docx, .xlsx and .pptx and it works OK.

It is even available for Linux x86_64 (which is my case).

Look for the Linux RPM and Linux 64 RPM downloads here:

It's a .tgz but inside that one are all the RPMs (you don't need to
run an installer script, just rpm -Uvh RPMS/*.rpm
RPMS/desktop-integration/openoffice.org3.1-redhat-menus-*.rpm works
just fine).
