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 The 'OpenDocument' description has been replaced by 'ODF', which stands for 'OpenDocument Format' and is becoming a well-known acronym thanks to rivalry with Microsoft's controversial OOXML format.

Not a defensive mode. Just a counter to someone trying to paint MS Office a certain way.

Also, don't think I'm defending MS Office to defend it. I can't stand using Microsoft Word (I do like Excel though) nor Visio (I use Enterprise Architect). Then again, I don't like using almost any Office software I've used (Gnumeric included, it's terrible. I had to fight against it to do basic hockey statistics. It would format the numbers however it felt like).
