Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"For a Linux office suite to succeed, for better or worse, it
has to be able to handle files used by Microsoft Office. Whether we
like it or not, Microsoft Office is ingrained into the pysche of
busines, and it will take a huge effort to change that."
"Until the change comes, and it will, programs like Applixware
have to "dance with the devil" and handle Microsoft Office format
files in all their horrible splendour."
"...My requirements of a spreadsheet program is pretty basic.
With that caveat, based on my experience, how does the
Applixware spreadsheet component stand up against Microsoft Excel?
It stands up very well and seems be even more compatible with it's
Windows brethren than the word processor component."
