Interesting interview and intriguing photos of nemo, the X1000 case looks smart too. Nice to know the micro A1 I sold to Trevor via eBay back in 2005 went to a good home .

@bitman
It can be a very good thing after all.
99% of users use only 1% of OO (or MS Office) features, the rest of the features just stand on your way.

OpenOffice for kids is perfect, it's faster and lighter than OpenOffice standard!

@Seya
Well just open the files (in case they were already saved) in office on your PC and re-save them in in the compatible format.
I deal with 3D data exchange everyday (which is far more complicated) and we manage just fine, office files exchange will be doable worry not.

The interview was a very nice read

When I first heard about this, I figured it was a port of Go-oo
