I think we are largely in agreement already. Thank you for the link to your
web page. Passionate writing and spot on.

As for me, I use OO (soon, perhaps: LibO) and MO interchangeably. I save all
my important personal and business files in .odt etc. format, and offer to
my clients that they can receive their files in .odt format. Nevertheless,
both reading and writing .docx etc. will remain a necessity for some time.
Too bad that the EU is not coming down hard on Microsoft to lay open .docx

One can only speculate about the reasons -- departure of hard-charging
antitrust lawyers from the Commission perhaps? -- but the awesome powers of
the Commission are unfortunately not being utilized at the moment.
