    Now, isn't it just like micro$oft?

    I find the Office 2007 ribbon interface (incl 2010 and 2013) much more efficient. Tried using OO the other day (which has a similar interface as 2003) to be cluttered, hard to find the correct button etc. :)
    Have they made is possible to open .docx on 2003 btw?

    I think my wife still uses open office or whatever that free office program is. I can't remember which.

    Yeah, like the consistent rendering of RTF files where the same file is being rendered differently between Office versions; MS could never get it right.

    But really, even for SMBs LO is quite more than enough, especially with the 4.x release.
