Take That Microsoft! (no selling word?)
Microsoft Word Sales Banned In 60 Days -- InformationWeek
apparently, MS has been banned from selling ms word because of specific file formats
.DOCX really annoyed me anyway.
QUICK! EVERYONE MOVE TO OPENOFFICE

yeah docx was annoying, everytime i had to do something at school my laptop has 07 and school had Office 03 but i didn't know you can get banned for having a certain file format.
if you read the article it says something about a part of the format being copyrighted or something.

I like OpenOffice too, but when I got my nephew a Linux Netbook I ran into a few draconian college professors. Example: one of his profs required a specific font for written assignments; so I had to find the equivalent and install it for him. There are other oddities that I have to install/fix for my nephew. The college is thrown if one doesn't have a Windows system and use MS Office. Anyway, keep the word out on OpenOffice.
