Microsoft Most websites glossed over this, but we didn't. Silverlight, once touted as Microsoft's answer to Adobe's Flash, has been retooled from its original purpose. Microsoft is betting big on HTML5 instead, turning Silverlight into the development platform for Windows Phone, and that's it. So... Silverlight is dead - long live Silerlight?

Last time I checked, OO compatibility with docx was poor and office compatibility with ODF was awful.


If one was going to use "poor" to describe OO compatibility with docx (which is possibly fair enough), then one needs a many-times-over stronger word than "awful" to describe MS Office compatibility with ODF.

If two users, one with OpenOffice and the other with MS Office, are exchanging files, then the user with OpenOffice is the one who is going to have a lot less trouble of the two.
