My ideal is to completely abandon MS Office. I like open-source software and
free software, not because they are free of charge but because I love freedom.

For exchanging documents with others, I have to pay attention to keeping the
layout of the documents with MS Office's proprietary formats. I only use the
free tools, MS Word/PowerPoint Viewer and MS Office Web Apps, to know whether
the documents are compatible. As for "open the ppt file with MS Powerpoint and
save it again", MS PowerPoint of course can open it, but MS PowerPoint Viewer
and MS Office Web Apps can't open it. If I need to view the layout, I should
find a computer with MS Office? How to let others accept LibreOffice and be
free from dependence on MS Office?

OpenOffice.org and Go-oo don't have the bug, but I still hope that LibreOffice
will be better.
