Sun’s ODF plug-in for Microsoft Word 2003 now available

Simon Phipps announced that now Sun’s plugin for MS Word 2003 is available for download (registration required), and as stated by Sun’s website:

Microsoft Word users now can easily import and export to the OpenDocument Format.

As Simon honestly reported the download is a little cumbersome, but it eventually works.

This (initial) plug-in supports only text documents’ conversions, support of spreadsheet and presentation documents is expected with the final version, in April.

I already mentioned Microsoft’s plug-in, by now Microsoft Word users have a second option, and I’m looking forward to see the da Vinci class of ODF plugins for Microsoft Office, that sounds promising in Sam Hiser’s words.
