It's not "the only". There are choices. It's not hugely tough to uninstall LibreOffice and
install Gnome Office, AOO, KOffice, Calligra, Google-docs or even Kingsoft or the weird one that
comes with Macs. I'm sure fanboys/girls of each could successfully argue why 'theirs' is the best.
Whichever you prefer it's good to know it co-operates with all the others. It's only Microsquish
that tends to restrict the types of formats you can use and the interoperability with other
products. The only real question for me is can i carry on using what i prefer using and still
communicate with "them" (whoever "they" are). When they are using MS the answer is a bit chancy
but if they use anything else the answer tends to be yes.
It's just "the icing on the cake" if they do choose to use the best (by which i mean LibreOffice)

Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols
has published an interesting article,
*French police move from Windows to Ubuntu Linux* (
, over at ZDNet. It deals explicitly with a migration from Windows XP to a
«customized version of Ubuntu Linux», but if, as I presume, LO is included
as the standard office suite, it is significant for us as well. Anyone
familiar with the details ?...
The only "standard" office suites on Linux with good MSO file compatibility are LO and AOO. If they
are using Ubuntu as the base I would expect them to use LO.
