I'm fully conversant with the main programs in Office, especially Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and access, having used all versions since before Windows 95. I've got ECDL Extra and itQ Level 2 and I am starting Level 3 soon, but please follow these links for more practical proof.
I have had no problems getting to grips with the major differences in Word and Excel between the 2003 versions and 2007/2010 and I am comfortable with both versions. I have both 2003 and 2010 installed at home.
I used Windows 8 in my last job, delivering courses on a suite of laptops. I then installed Windows 8 at home, but I have since gone back to XP, which I have as a dual-boot with Linux Ubuntu 12.04
I used versions of Windows NT in HMRC and I used Macs when I had work experience in a printer's design studio, using Photoshop and InDesign for image manipulation. I have used Writer in both Libreoffice and OpenOffice, which is their equivalent of Word.
My main reason for downloading & installing Libreoffice, OpenOffice and the operating system Ubuntu 12.4 is curiosity. I like keeping abreast of alternatives to Microsoft products and I like to know what other people use. Most of the time most users take it for granted that what they have on their computer is what is essential, and I don't want to be missing out on some lesser known program that might make computer work easier for me.
