There are two different "topics" here.
1 - Open File Formats - ODF
2 - Free and Open Source Software office suites - LO and OOo/AOO


that is true. But if you don't understand why and how they are deeply
interrelated, and how promoting the first is the most effective thing
you may do to promote the second, please re-read again what Jay wrote:

I think promoting ODF formats which are ISO standards for all office
documents "levels the playing field". It does not matter as pointed out
above what program is used by the user to create or edit a file. Then
all packages are truly competing on features/benefits/costs continuum
not on the ability to properly parse a specific proprietary format.
Also, using ODF formats avoids the tweaking MS apparently does with
their formats with each new release.

Thanks Jay, well said.
