.Doc Format::OpenOffice.org Writer vs. Microsoft Word, round three

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 4.255.167.138] on September 12, 2007 07:25 PM
At least, when some moron sends you a .doc file made with word,
you can read it by:
'strings foo.doc | less'

.Doc files made with OOo are not human-readable. . .
Also an inconvenience when searching your own OOo .doc files,
to locate a forgotten document.
Terminal and command line is just so EFFICIENT !!!
