Re: Office software shootout: OpenOffice.org Writer vs. Micosoft Word, round three

I do appreciate the fact that ODF is an open and well designed ISO spec. However, the available implementations of ODF (AbiWord, KOffice and the like) seem to disagree about the interpretation of the spec sufficiently to make document exchange a PITA. From a practical point of view it is more important to me that OO is available on several platforms. I can continue to edit files from my workplace Windoze box at home on my FreeBSD box. Couldn't do this with Word.
