Features, Office OpenOffice.org has hit back at claims that the alternative office applications suite is riddled with security holes. Researchers at the French Ministry of Defense say that OpenOffice is subject to security weaknesses that make it at least as susceptible to computer viruses as the commercial, more widely used, Microsoft Office.

I agree. When sending documents to clients, I always prefer to use PDF for several reasons:

1. Read-only format. Don't want clients changing terms of contract, invoice numbers etc.
2. Highly accessible. Works on virtually any system. Readers are free and highly pervasive.
3. Size. PDFs are generally smaller than .Doc
4. No virii worries!!

After all, PDF stands for Portable Document Format!
