The Wikipedia article is a good source of ODF-supporting applications
and tools.  But we should avoid  stereotyping OpenOffice as being only
an ODF editor.  It has broad support for importing and exporting many
other formats, standard as well as well-established proprietary
formats.

In the end there are multiple, overlapping ecosystems, of code, of
standards, etc.
