Have you ever actually been inside a business? You're going to go tell the Accounting department that you're taking away Excel? Are you nuts? This is so ridiculous it sounds like Slashdot circa 2001.... StarOffice, yeah! ApplixWare, yeah!

HR just LOVES getting resumes in .odt format. What the hell is this? Move to the back of the employment line, Junior.....

Amazing how you're yelling and screaming at me whilst ignoring that I was not the original poster in this subthread - but hey, a moron called "MeatAndTaters" with 6 posts in 5 years screams sock-puppet account. Do us all a favour and take a high dive into a shallow rock pool.

I never said it was a drop in replacement for every circumstances but you do realise that ever business is different and each have a unique set of requirements - but hey being a smart c-nt seems to be more in tune with your massive ego.
