SoftMaker Office 2008 focuses on compatibility with Microsoft Office

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 198.209.19.140] on November 21, 2008 02:13 AM
"The free and open source office suite OpenOffice.org might be a killer app for many, but its inability to properly display documents created in the proprietary Microsoft Office formats hinders its widespread acceptance in multi-OS business environments with many legacy .doc and .xls files."

Since when? Have you tried it recently? It even reads (not writes) .docx and .xlsx! I do my homework in Calc all the time, and save it as .xls.
