Large Redmond Collider: CERN reveals plan to shift from Microsoft to open-source code after tenfold license fee hike


Re: Document formats

On the subject of open/libre office; we recently had a production incident at the pension company I work at, where one of the execs of the company - as a member of the pension scheme - had downloaded their contribution history (a newly added function) as a CSV file, and was wondering why it was so messed up when he opened it. Turns out he was using open office and it just didn't open CSVs properly, regardless of what we did, and the issue was still present in the latest available version of open office. It would open as a jumbled mess instead of as a readable table.
