Actually Sun wrote that plugin and made it available to Microsoft Office back in February. I noticed, but didn't think it was Win7 worthy.
February of this year? Microsoft made the announcement in May of last year
, that ODF support was going to be added in Office 2007 SP2.
But, I didn't say Word, since Word still doesn't officially support ODF because Microsoft hasn't added it yet. (sure you can go get a plugin for it from somewhere else, but that isn't the same as it being including in it, as part of the product, by Microsoft)
And Word (or Office) isn't part of Windows any way. It's a separate product, and an expensive one, at that.
If I had been referring to Word, you are right...it wouldn't have been worthy of mentioning in a thread about Win7. But that wasn't what I said or what I was referring to.
What I said was Wordpad
, which comes with Windows (this is what make it worthy of mentioning in a thread about Win7)...what has always been a second rate poor excuse for a word processor, that traditionally never supports anything
that you really need to open. An application that has remained virtually unchanged since Win95.
I am referring to this thing that looks like the results of a beginner's tutorial in coding:WINDOWS 7 THREAD (ongoing)Quick! What Windows version is this from?
Microsoft finally gave it a facelift, an update, and in Win7 it officially supports ODF now
, out of the box, before Word officially will.WINDOWS 7 THREAD (ongoing)This is Wordpad from Win7.
