Recent versions of MS Office can open the Open Document Format files created by LibreOffice (certainly Writer & Excel, which I use, no personal experience using Powerpoint). Most documents should open without a problem but some formatting may not work as intended (and the other way around, LibreOffice can open MS Office douments, not all formatting may appear as intended, not sure if macros will work at all). You can save LibreOffice documents in MS Office (and other) formats if you need to share with others; one HINT, do your work and editing in LibreOffice and only save a final copy in MS Office Format (saving a LibreOffice formatted original for future editing).
