    OpenOffice can open all those files: docx, xlsx etc.
    In order to make it seamless, make sure that file associations exist for those extensions.

    How? I clicked on the 1-click install button on their website and it didn't work. Can't remember the error message though.

    As long as you have the OO repository configured, try using Online update in YaST; it's not as quick as 1-click but it works.

    http://software.opensuse.org/search

    Search for OpenOffice_org

    You can find OpenOffice 3.1 there, if that's what you want.
    Copy the url in the right corner of the result block you're interested
    in and add as url to your repo list.

    Installed it from the stable repo - everything seemed to install fine but now Writer no longer starts...

    Solved. I had a Writer document open - closing it and restarting Writer worked, I'm now on version 3.1.
