Happy Document Freedom Day!
March 26, 2008
Liberate your documents today for Document Freedom Day. It’s a great time to make the switch away from software that only saves your files in proprietary formats. After all, you never know when that next software update might suddenly render all your old work “incompatible” with that shiny new word processor you just got.
Instead of risking the high costs and wasted time of converting those old files to the new proprietary format (that will probably screw up their formatting anyway), take the chance to learn about document formats that embrace open standards like ODF.
I liberated my own documents about two years ago and never looked back. These days, I use a combination of NeoOffice, TextEdit, and Google Docs to meet all of my office productivity needs.
