It's the economy! Only dreams are free. Of course everybody wants the magic soft to open each and every proprietary file format of computing history.

There are limitations in software development just like there are
limitations in the physical technology.

I am not denying there are limitations, but I refuse to believe we have
come to the point we have reached any such limitation.

Again, why don't you refer to the OP who does not work with a magic future version. His questions are about today's LibreOffice and the same user has MS Office installed on another computer. He can choose between both suites with their respective native file formats but realistically he can not expect too much interoperability for presentation documents, particularly when the font sets differ on both machines.

I don't know what you are afraid of, but fear is the path to the dark
side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate...

All I wish is a little more self confidence regarding the ODF standard. We don't need a third decade where virtually everybody is occupied with MS interfaces, MS documents, MS browsers, MS APIs, MS protocols and extensions of all kinds.
