Microsoft Office vs OpenOffice: Independent Review Contradicts Redmond

"Microsoft used to have an advertisement asking where you wanted to go today; this is more true of OpenOffice since it allows you more control of your data through vendors and even inhouse staff who can help with it. Microsoft is dictating a future; this is why they do not allow Open Standards. This is also why Microsoft spends so much time in courts around the world." A fine rebuttal of the Microsoft 2-page PDF comparison of Microsoft Office versus Open Office. The article covers each and every point covered in the original Microsoft PR work, and adds lots of more detailed info. The comments to the article add an incredible amount of extra valuable information, both pro and con MS Office, that is next to impossible to find anywhere else.
