Why such sudden demand on help to find the ODF plugin?
One reason:
The Hungarian government give as a Christmas present, they submitted a 
decree in 23 December last year, which ordered all ministers exclude in 
Ministry of Defence to use open standards document format in their work 
from start of April this year.
The two standardized format are OOXML, and ODF 1.0.
On the  computers in ministries, and public services lot of Office 2003 
working correctly, and they needs this plugin to open ODF files, for 
fast solution.
But the government now recommends that public organizations switch to 
using open source office suites. If not, the institutes will have to 
explain the technical and economic reasons why they depend on 
proprietary office tools.
