On the Other Hand ... Google Docs Does PDF

On the other hand, Google Docs now does PDF, too. Still, just read, but let's see if they beat Open Office to letting me write it. :-)

Yesterday, I got email with an attached .odt document. Gmail asked whether I wanted to look at it as a Google document. I said "Yes," and it came up fine. Another recipient asked for a copy in Word format "so people could read it."

I saved it in "Word format" -- Word 6, Word 95, and Word 97 -- and sent him all three. The first two were only 6 times the size of the .odt document. The third was ten times the size.
