Quoting Marc Paré:

And yes, MSO format conversions are not 100% and where there are power users like Peter, it may be 
difficult to
rationalize using LibO when his customers are unwilling to adopt an ODF format which would simply 
work. There is always
the option for Peter to propose a change in office suite to his clients and suggest that a free 
migration to LibO would
save them quite a bit in expenditures and would still provide them with the same functionality as 
MSO but using the ODF
formats instead.

My clients are mostly major corporations who don't tend to welcome IT strategy suggestions from 
suppliers! Sure, they're aware of OO and open source in general but they're not planning to change anytime soon. This is not because they've been brainwashed by MS; it's mostly because they can't afford (financially and timewise) the risk of having to re-train thousands of users with the productivity drop that this would involve.
