RE: 100% compatible
Actually it shouldn't matter what format the resume is in, that is the whole point. I realize there are plenty of people that are "FOSS or die", and many that are "MS or die". I prefer "Whatever is best for the job or die".
Unfortunately there are too many fanatics on both sides of the fence.
Like it or not, licensing matters. Proprietary formats are a trap, and IMO they should be avoided like a pest whenever possible. Sorry but I don't buy the "can't we all just get along while I sue you?".
But the above is beside the point.If someone sends a resume to a (conspicuously!) FOSS-centered company in a format that brings so many headaches to FOSS developers, this person is either blissfully ignorant of FOSS, not very interested in the job or plain rude, and their resume belongs in the trash. It's just the first filter.
