Sun ODF Plugin for Microsoft Office
The Sun ODF Plugin for Microsoft Office gives users of Microsoft Office Word, Excel and PowerPoint the ability to read, edit and save to the ISO-standard Open Document Format (ODF).
The Sun ODF Plugin uses the same incomplete "understanding" of Microsoft Office internal formats as OpenOffice itself does.
As a matter of fact ... it even uses much of the same codebase. OpenOffice is Sun's product, after all.
You are probably much better off installing OpenOffice itself, and hence get yourself the real thing as far as interoperability with OpenDocument is concerned.
You will end up with a great alternative Office suite as a bonus!
