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 The 'OpenDocument' description has been replaced by 'ODF', which stands for 'OpenDocument Format' and is becoming a well-known acronym thanks to rivalry with Microsoft's controversial OOXML format.

I think the average user does not use over 50% of all the features in MS-Office. Even if they have OOo they will not use all of his features.


the trouble with these arguments is that, even if true, every user likely uses a different subset of 50% of the features. Hence, having 100% of the features to please everyone, or 50% of the features and pleasing no one.

Or having 80% and pleasing most people.

Then again, a fair question might be "What percentage of OO.o's features does MSO support?". Depending upon which way you ask the question, one or the other side is always put at a disadvantage.
