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

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 60.241.225.254] on September 12, 2007 12:26 AM
Microsoft Word is unusable in my case for a couple of major reasons:
1) It is unable to to open ODF format documents which is a huge minus because ODF is an international standard.
2) It doesn't run on Linux.
In conclusion, Microsoft Word supports few formats and few operating environments so it is not really usable.
