I believe that companies should use open formats, but at this point in time I have never seen a company that has moved from the standard MSO formats. This is likely because the majority has not changed to open formats. Once more people adopt using open formats, then we will likely see a change, but for now this is not the reality.

2) Advocating ignoring MS files only makes sense on a personal basis.
Por companies that is absurd. Maybe academia could start that
movement but it will take time before it reaches the companies...
Actually, it makes lots of sense for companies to avoid MS formats.
It's trying to get them to do that that will be hard. And even if they
don't use any themselves, they are almost certainly going to have to
accept MS formats from others.

This is something we should be advocating (as loudly as possible,
even), but we should be aware of the realities, and advocating it as
a sane option, not trying to force it down peoples throats.
