Whats needed in Open Office and other ODF software is a micoshaft kill

Just like a mono kill switch and a non-free software kill switch.

It prevents organisations from uptake of micohaft products while micoshaft
marketing plops intentinally seek out incompatibility and don't want to play

It should be discussed at the higest levels of software engineering
by project managers to ensure the lock out of micoshaft is not just
a one off event - but a system wide option and enterprise scale
