I still think that Rtf is well worth avoiding if at all possible but
a whole load of people fell for MS's marketing.  Even to this day
there are
people who believe in using it, despite the findings of the court case.

Which court case? RTF is rather trivial format, providing compatibility
between versions from 1986 till today. If LO does not support it, it is
itself to blame, not Microsoft, 'monopolies' or denizens of Nibiru.


Can you answer the question on top of this article? Which non-MS
application can handle every flavour of RTF you throw at it?
On a Windows box, MS WordPad is the one and only application I would
try. On my Windows boxes we have a business application which generates
RTF and opens its own RTF for editing, but it is never confronted with
any RTF from other applications.
On my Linux boxes, the first application is MS Word Viewer under Wine.
For RTF editing my preferred application is AbiWord which is excellent
in respect to RTF but not perfect. I remember files that look fine in
AbiWord and others that look fine in LibreOffice but only MS Word Viewer
handles all of them properly.
