People still want what they know and if they are used to Office in the office then they want office.

Employers know that most people are used to Office and Windows.

People using computers at home like to be gaining skills that are transferable to work.

I do a lot in Scrivener now. I'm now finding that publishers are not requiring ancient MS Word formats any more but they still need docs that they can mess with if necessary.
