[tdf-discuss] Re: OpenOffice dead and burried?


ODF support is present in MS Office 2007 SP2 and MS Office 2010 (it
even can be selected as default file format) so what would be your
target?


MS Office 2003 and older? It does not look reasonable to me,
because by the time we develop something useable, only a minority of
users will use such old versions of MS Office.


I didn't know that. I'm still a Office 2003 user (and don't intend to switch
to a newer version)
The famous "ribbon" interface just wasted my time. That is why I love that
LO has a menu interface PLUS Office 2007/2010 format support (for those
colleagues who insist on having the latest...) and 1 million lines in Calc
:)

Forget all I said about ODF Add-ons. Even if the Office 2003 user base is
large enough now (MS never reveals these numbers, do they? :) ) I agree that
it would not make sense to start such a project now for a product that will
be unsupported soon (ish... in 2014).

Please concentrate on the updates then :)

Cheers,
Pedro
