But what good does having ODF support for only one text editor application? What about spreadsheets and presentations? If Apple really wants to get behind ODF, they will include seamless ODF support in iWork, perhaps even as the default file format. Until then, don't kid yourself. Apple is not an open company, and they've already shown themselves to be ignorant of or behind the times on more than one open technology. As just another example, why can't an ipod play ogg vorbis files?

hmmm... before getting all haughty over Apple, perhaps one could also ask: "Why can't OpenOffice play ogg vorbis files?". Or can it? Certainly if I just open Writer and go Insert>Movies and Sound and then pick a .ogg file, it'll insert, but Media Player doesn't play it...
