Re: [tdf-discuss] New "LibreOffice Reader" Eliminates Need for "PDF Reader"


The problem with building a reader is that it would be about the same size
as LibreOffice. OpenDocument is very different from PDF. For those who can't
install LO, they probably can't install the reader either.

You have to think about file formats when interacting with people, just like
you have to think about language. The solution here is for you to make DOC,
etc. your default format so that the computer will do the right thing even
when you forget. The long-term solution is for people to standardize on ODF.

Regards,
