Why should I follow around after OO when I can just boot Windows in
about a minute and a half, and be assured that the doc is ok? If OO
knows there is a problem, then it should tell me. If there is no
problem, it shouldn't frighten me. If it doesn't know, then why should
I use it?


But I've seen the problem with documents being different if it is sent to someone also using MicroSoft, but having a different printer or fonts. It doesn't print the same. We use to make forms available in Word format, but they would print differently on different system, with different page breaks. PDF files worked with all printers. The only problem was that users couldn't edit the forms, but that wasn't a big issue in our case.

This is a different topic, seems to me. PDF is intended to solve a
different problem, that of printing documents, not editing them.

You have found the bank of Larn.
I can explain it for you, but I can't understand it for you.
I speak only for myself, and I am unanimous in that!
