Jiri: Both of these people work for professional organizations where the
organizations have settled on the .docx format as their default document
format. For one of these people, installing LibreOffice at his
university is simply not an option for now. The other person works for a
large music organization that has also settled on MSO although she is
advocating LibreOffice with some sort of success, but not yet endorsed
by the organization.

The fact that these organisation chose to use m$ in instead of odf is
of their own right to do. Making their lives easier using m$ is of _no
benefit_ to LO.

Tom: Both of these people are already exporting their files in .doc or
.pdf files. The problem with this is that they now have a ton of files
that have been doubled; they are both at the admin levels of their
organizations and have very active roles in committees.

Nothing to do with LO. Are these people using LO with authorisation
from those who decided to use m$ by default? The duplication of
documents in multiple formats is entirely the responsibility of the
organisation; nothing to do with LO.

Being able to "Send" more than one file at a time would eliminate
completely the need to export physical files to hardrives.

They should have thought about this before deciding upon m$!

I was thinking if LibreOffice were able to do this, then people would
grow to depend on the ODF file formats more and view any other file
format as being less important. The perception to users would be that
ODF formats are the "defacto" format and other are really "sub-formats"
to the defacto OFD formats.

Total nonsense. The only result would be: "fantastic, we can continue
to use LO as a m$ clone and increase the proliferation of m$ file
formats" Even m$ would find that scenario (m$ documents being created
by LO) preferable to an increase in quantities of odf documents being

Lack of strategic analysis is preventing growth in the use of odf...
