It is compatible, but not required, and I don't like people to be denied
"Pirate citizenship" if they are OK with proprietary software. To be
simple: I have OpenOffice and I can read doc.-documents, but an average
Windows user can't read .odt-docs. Is it OK for you?

Then we have to make a decision, don't we? Either we want to be a
movement for the general people - and then we have to endorse Flash and
MS Office - or we want to be a marginal nerd movement, in which case you
can surely present everything in a Linux-only,
jar.tar.-whatthefuckarchive-format and be proud of it.
Have your pick.
