Re: OpenDoc support

Surprisingly, MS Office supports the Open Document formats far better than Open Office does!

Oh puhleeze. The only "surprisingly" here is that someone seems to think this is a credible statement.

This nonsense keeps getting posted - as if a company that has been fighting the ODF standard tooth and nail suddenly is capable of handling it as if it had invented it. ODF support in MS Office is, not to put too fine a point on it, sh*t. It is very evident from the way MS has implemented it that it really wants people to use MS formats.

That statement also fails the logic sniff test: OpenOffice and LibreOffice have been working with ODF from the day it was invented, whereas MS is the Johnny-come-lately in this format. To state that MS is anywhere *near* handling ODF properly is ludicrous. Prove it.
