--- Comment #2 from Justin Case <justincase@yopmail.com> ---
Microsoft Office 95 compatibility is very important for those in academia
especially the ability to read files created in Microsoft Office 95.

Thank You, Micheal, for Your offer. We have about 40.000 files in older 
Office-formats whereof, about 25.000 in Office 95, about 15.000 in 
Powerpoint-Presentations and WORD-Handbooks.

Many professors wrote in that thread about their problem of opening Office 95
files in the newer MS Office suites.

Keeping Microsoft Office 95 compatiblity functional and *visible* will help
Apache OOo expand into academic circles which is important as these are the
people teaching the next generation. Their influence on students is very high
and Microsoft knows this, this is why Microsoft offers a very steep discounted
rate for their Office suite for both teachers and students. Consider academia a
battleground, Microsoft certainly does.
