Linux "Not that long ago, a significant portion of desktop GNU/Linux enthusiasts were actively advocating GNU/Linux among Windows users. I even remember doing it myself at one point, though now I really don't care what you use on your computer as long as I don't have to use it too. I thought that sentiment was isolated to me, but lately I've seen an abrupt decline in GNU/Linux evangelism on online forums. Here are some possible reasons for this change in community thinking and behavior."

you judge an Office Suite on the support it has for non-native, closed source, proprietary formats without documentation?

I don't. Most windows users do.

Importing .doc, .xls, .ppt is a bonus but not a detail for users who have a bunch of ms office docs.

I doubt that the OOo native formats would give the same amount of trouble...

I use OASIS/ODT doc with no problem (although I had some troubles some time ago with ODT between Kword/Kspread and Oo).

I wasn't trashing Oo. I was just sharing my experience.
