Features, Office The news of OpenOffice.org's third major release has generated quite a bit of buzz on the internet for many reasons, one of which being that it now runs natively on a Mac (sans X11). ZDnet has posted a screenshot gallery of OpenOffice.org 3.0 for those who have yet to try the hot-off-the-press application.

That would be awkward when these people are customers ;)

But the rationale behind not saving as docx actually makes sense.

Well, when I heard 'collaborators', I assumed they were work colleagues.

True, hopefully Office 2007 will come out which will mean out of the box ODT/ODF support.

Don't you mean MS-ODT/MS-ODF support?

You can of course get out of the box ODT/ODF support with OpenOffice right now.

I have been told that Office 2007 SP2 (which is apparently available now) also implements ODT/ODF support ... although I haven't heard any assesment of it in any report or review so far, so I cannot comment on how reliable or compliant it is.
