Abrindo arquivos ODF no MS-Office

O pessoal da phase-n,
uma empresa australiana está com um projeto no ar
que permitirá aos usuários do MS-Office abrir e gravar documentos em
A idéia é interessante pois não passa pelo processo de criar um filtro
isolado. Ao invés disso, eles estão criando um plug-in para o MS-Office
que conversa com um servidor com o OpenOffice.org instalado.
Além deste projeto também há mais dois:
- AODC, em http://opendocument4all.com/component/option,com_frontpage/Itemid,1 que faz a transformação passando por HTML.
- Open Office to MSOffice XML Converter, em http://www.clever-age.org/index.php?id=40
Outro projeto interessante para quem desenvolve aplicações Java é o ODF4J em
http://odf4j.sourceforge.net. Uma biblioteca Java para suporte ao formato ODF.
Todos os projetos ainda parecem estar em estágios iniciais mas vale a pena
acompanhar. Um filtro de exportação e importação entre o OOo e o MS-O pode
ser muito interessante em projetos de migração.

13 Good Reasons to switch from Internet Explorer to Firefox
1. You'll only see porn when you want to.
Sick of seeing pornographic pop-ups all over your computer while you're
helping your daughter with a research project? Since Firefox blocks pop-ups,
you won't get tons of porn in your face when you're least expecting it. On
the flip side, since Firefox stops spyware from taking over your computer,
there will be nothing to slow you down when you go and look for porn.
2. Your kids will only see porn when they want to.
Sorry, buddy... the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
3. Your computer won't spend its free time telling the world about Viagra soft tabs.
Experts say 80% of spam comes from hacked PCs. Firefox has much better
security, so your computer will get hacked less. Do it for the children,
the children! (caveat: reducing Viagra spam may also reduce total number
4. Mozilla doesn't inflate prices and use the money to vaccinate children in Africa.
Uhh... wait a second. Maybe Microsoft's monopoly hasn't been all bad. Better
donate to Oxfam. Seriously, you should.
5. If we knew web designers would hurl themselves off it, we wouldn't have
put the Golden Gate bridge so close to San Francisco.
Every year, hundreds of web designers take their own lives rather than
continue the hopeless struggle of making their websites IE compatible. Is
that what you really want?? Dead web designers????? Cause that's what you're
going to get!!!!!! See if I care!!!!!!!!!!
6. Keep squinting and your eyes will get stuck like that, stupid
Unlike IE, Firefox makes it easy to make text bigger. Just hit Control and
"+" at the same time. And Control "-" makes it smaller.
7. It will make Bill Gates soooooooooo mad.
Seriously-- super, super mad. And even more than Bill, let's think about Steve
"I'm going to fucking kill Google" Ballmer for a second (actual quote). If
there's anyone that's going to absolutely blow a gasket when they see
this website, it will be him. (video proof of Steve Ballmer being a crazy,
8. Mozilla has never made a talking paperclip.
9. Ritalin is fun, but A.D.D. is not.
Tabbed browsing, ad blocking, and pop-up blocking make it a lot easier to
stay focused. Better for epileptics too: with Firefox's ad blocking ability,
there won't be as many large swaths of flashing, pulsating colors on the
websites you visit. Nothing worse than getting thrown into a seizure by a
"Test your IQ!" ad.
10. It's like switching from dating a 14-year-old to dating an 18-year-old.
...for a 16 year old, we mean. You know, it's a win-win.
11. Reduce your weekly family & friends tech support load to 8 hours.
You won't miss hearing this:
"I verified my credit card number since the computer said it had spyware, but now I can't email..."
"Honey, I found a new business partner in Nigeria but I can't email him our
bank account info because the internet is broken..."
"The Secret Service called this morning and said that our computer sent
20,000 scatalogical emails to the President..."
12. More effective than throwing pies.
Switching to Firefox works better than throwing a pie in Bill Gates'
face. Pies just make him more determined, but Firefox steals his mojo.
13. Because the Department of Justice Lacks Balls.
They spent years and years on the Microsoft anti-trust suit and it did
absolutely nothing to reduce Microsoft's monopoly. Great work guys. It's time
to take the law (erm, the Sherman Antitrust Act of 1890?) into our own hands.
