Why did they need to upgrade their MS licenses to read ODF files? IT reads that they had old version of MSO, but it would have been nice for them to use the FREE alternative instead. Besides, was there not threads about issues with MSO's version of reading and writing ODF formats? I never heard any news that the newest versions of MSO worked well with ODF.

Still, any way that gets businesses to use the ISO standard file formats [ODF not MSO XML] is a good thing. Then the next step is for those businesses to try and use LO instead of paying for newer version of MSO. MSO 2013 [or Office 15] is still having problems, but so is Win8 which is due out in 2 months. So why bother. Just use LO and not worry about MS's problems with lost revenue and their ways to get more money out of less work.

Another way is to use the Sun ODF plugin, which is a free download. It'd trust it more than MS to do things right.
