Features, Office Version 2.4 of the OpenOffice productivity suite was released on Thursday, boasting enhancements to all its core components. Possibly the most significant alteration in the new version of the free suite is in the description of file types. The 'OpenDocument' description has been replaced by 'ODF', which stands for 'OpenDocument Format' and is becoming a well-known acronym thanks to rivalry with Microsoft's controversial OOXML format.

The employer should be more than willing to pay for a MS Office license if that's what their employee wants to use. It's not an unreasonable request. And who the employer pays to support their users shouldn't be a holier than thou snob when they do have to support someone using software they do not prefer.

What a lode of old cobblers! You have either never been in the PC user support business or you are a Microsoft employee or apologist. How stupid is that to suggest that users in a business be able to select their own software! Why not hardware as well? Who cares if nobody can communicate with anyone else? Contribute by all means but have something sensible to say.
