Stop assuming that someone has access to Windows or can afford to buy a

afford to buy new software and possibly the hardware to run it.
A Pentium PC with Office '97 reads and writes doc/xls/ppt almost
perfectly. There are "free" viewers and "free" online versions of MSO.
Thanks to our software, MSO removed their "Genuine Advantage" model from
their office suite so every MS addict can have his "free copy" of MSO.
Reportedly, some capable converters exist (I tried zamzar.com with more
satifying results than LibO). So far not a single doc/xls coming from my
Linux machine has been rejected by any MS user. Just do not write OOXML!
