Actually, I have. But it also matters on mobile, as well as, I'd guess, for some developing
processes for batch conversion of documents. Finally, it's not evident to me that refusing
to develop to what is likely to become the major desktop document format globally—alas—is
a good strategy that would lead to the adoption of OO. Rather, it seems it would only help
those applications that do (express) both ODF *and* .docx well.
