Lotus Symphony free for OpenOffice?

Is the IBM Lotus Symphony freeware that supposedly works with OpenOffice legit?
I've used OpenOffice spreadsheet and can get most everything done, except it's never been able to import files from some of the later Lotus 123 versions. I've always thought it odd that OpenOffice would import the earlier *.wk1 and *wks files but not the later *.wk5 files.
If this new Lotus Symphony freeware is for real, does it handle the old Lotus keyboard commands? For better or worse, I have a couple of old Lotus users who I can't convert to Excel because they still think in terms of "/Range-Copy" and "/Data-Fill" rather than the equivalent mouse actions and are too stubborn to change. Once their old PCs with Lotus installed breathe their final breaths, these folks are going to be "/Worksheet-Global-OutOfLuck" unless I can figure something out.
Thanks as always!
