Hi at all
Just a cracy idea. What happend if we start a complete new project
from the scratch. Apache OpenOffice Cloud? Not a big Office like now,
just a small one.
Please forgive me... it's 0:52 local time.

My fear is: if AOO exports in OOXML (as LibO does), what will happen
to ODF? Most users would just use OOXML since it would be compatible
with AOO and MS Office. It may lead to frustration because of the
glitches from the conversions. OTOH, it may

Even if it came from a previous format, the goal was to make a
documented format to allow compatibility with other applications. So
not designed from scratch, agreed, but changes made for
interoperability. That's how I understand the target of ODF.

I think that ODF was designed to be a fully open standard to
give the users back the property of their own data.
No, that's not correct.

In fact, I came to OOo in 2006 because I used to use MS Word to
compile data and one day a file got corrupted for an unknown reason. I
discovered that there was no way to recover the file because it was
proprietary. I think that at that time the .doc

It is a misunderstanding to assume that there is some "strict" ODF
conformance requirement. That is factually not the case, nor does
anything in the specification require some clear conformance for

This thread is going off at half cock!
Hagar's implied point was that any change in editor is almost certain
to cause some alteration (greater or lesser) in formatting. Why this
should be and whether the precise file format is

Only with better software, we can beat MS, not with stupid sayings.

There is online editing although it might require being a Microsoft

One of the great things about FOSS is the tight connection
