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

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 129.34.20.23] on September 11, 2007 04:22 PM
On the subject of bibliographies, evaluating the built-in tools is sort of beside the point, because neither has even adequate functionality. However, if you use Word, you can use EndNote, which is extremely powerful, and more importantly has at least in the academic world become the standard. One of the main things preventing me from dropping Word entirely is the fact that EndNote doesn't work with OpenOffice/ODF, and I have collaborators who insist on Word (left to my own devices, I prefer latex/bibtex for research articles, etc).
