    I am migrating my company's pc to libreoffice on windows, all my users
are using windows terminal services, now i want to set default file save
format to MS-Office i.e. .doc, .xls, .ppt to all users.

Bad idea. As MS-Office formats are foreign formats for LibreOffice, your
users wil have a less good user experience with LibO because you force
the software to make format conversions each time you open or save a

I think other formats than ODF should be considered only as export
formats, like pdf is. Work in ODF, save in ODF and, if you have to send
your file, choose an export format accordingly to the usage of the file.
If receiver of the document does not need to modify the file, pdf is the
right format. If he needs to modify the document and is not able to work
with ODF (nobody is perfect), then you should export your document to
doc (MS-Office 97/2000/XP). But your ODF version should always be your
reference version.


Seuls des formats ouverts peuvent assurer la pérennité de vos documents.
