I don't really understand the logic behind your suggestion.
You want LO to drop support for the defacto-standard file format???
I don't really see any good reason for doing such a completely
strategically wrong decision.
Although MS stopped free support for MS Office 2003 some time ago,
its use is still widespread. It would be a mistake for LibO to
support the ill-defined, shifting OOXML and deprecate MS 2003
I constantly recieve office 2003 .xls files from users. If you mean the
OOXML files I've never recieved any of them from the users I get
spreadsheets from. I doubt they would know what the are. I even get a
spreadsheet from a user who uses Win 98.
Also the present version of LibreOffice I use has aproblem with an
occassional spreadsheet from OpenOffice. I am about ready to report it
as a bug.
This is just a comment.
