And do you care? I don’t. Doesn’t matter to me since I’ve never had any problems opening Microsoft documents, neither in Open Office, nor its sucessor Libre Office, since those FOSS softwares are 99.9% compatible with Microsoft. That openness has never been reciprocated by high and mighty MS though.
Obviously pressured by the growing number of individuals and commercial groups they’ve opened up to become compatible with FOSS formats.
Look what Tom has to say about that:
Hey, does that mean the bad old Microsoft Office product will open itself up to the world of real computing … and become usable? Whoa!
