I'm not sure about Multimate but star office docs will likely always
work with OpenOffice if just because of the relationship between Sun and
OpenOffice.  StarOffice has either become just a commercially supported
version of OpenOffice, or StarOffice is an offshoot of OpenOffice in
terms of operations.  StarOffice can deal with the ODT files of
OpenOffice quite handily too.

I recently transfered some files from a machine that had run SUSE 7.0
to the Ubuntu 8.10 that I am using currently.  I had a bit of a problem
with the documents.
