OpenOffice vs. Microsoft Office

Redmond continues its fight against Open Source: they published a OpenOffice 1.1 Competitive Guide to tell people why they should be using Microsoft Office (ignoring the fact that not everybody is running Windows, but that’s how their world looks like).

The OSS community picked up the glove and wrote back. Read their answer here.

We tried OpenOffice in our company but had to go back to Microsoft, unfortunately – it’s not that it doesn’t work, but documents originating from MS Office still are not 100% identical, and there are some quirks to be worked out by OpenOffice (like graphics disappearing when editing slides – obviously a redraw thing).
