Why? For values of "knock off" which include "Product with more than a passing
similarity to better known competitor" Star Office / Open Office can fairly be
described as a (Microsoft) Office knock-off.
I know of one pilot implementation of OO where the only remark made to the
support person by the people who had their Microsoft Office replaced by Open
Office was "Oh - did we get a new version of Office?" Sounds like a pretty
accurate knock off to me.
