| The move of Lotus Symphony to the OpenOffice.org 3 code base, and more
| importantly, having Lotus Symphony based on the current OpenOffice.org code
| trunk going forward, is the first step. We will see more pressure for full
| ODF and OOXML support, not the current OpenOffice.org implementation of ODF
| or the Office 2007 file formats, over the next 12 to 18 months. We as
| consumers of these products must demand full support of the file format - not
| the custom implementations out there today.
