Subject Re: Suggestion - file format
Date Wed, 11 Jul 2012 08:23:19 GMT

people who want to have MS Office file formats as default storage format 
can configure it within the dialog


Please bear in mind that MS Office file formats are not OpenOffice's 
generic formats. OpenOffice needs to import/export them and it's not 
guaranteed that these formats are supported by 100 per cent. Using the 
ODF file format loading and saving is always safer and faster.
The ODF format is used by millions of users worldwide not only by using 
OpenOffice but by using a lot of other programs that make use of this 
OASIS and ISO approved document format.

btw. OpenOffice is already a very popular product!
