Science rejects the new Microsoft Word

Well, this is a rare convergence of the two main topics of this blog: science and open source. Well, not really, but the way I view them will. Science is the journal of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. So, they've rejected the new version of Microsoft Word because it is highly backwards-incompatible. Now, Microsoft, that is not really the way to go. I'm sure it looked good on paper, all Office versions would have to be updated in order to maintain compatibility, which means MONEY! Unfortunately, that plan kinda backfired, didn't it?

You know what I'm gonna say now, right? In order to maintain compatibility, OpenOffice! You know you want to.
