When considering alternatives to Microsoft's Office productivity suite, one of the most important issues to evaluate is how well Office rivals can handle Microsoft's ubiquitous binary file formats. eWEEK Labs used Adobe Acrobat 9's Compare Documents feature to help measure OpenOffice.org's handling of Microsoft Office formats.
 
 
 

Acrobat 9 provided a brief summary of the changes between the two documents I was comparing. Interestingly, the OpenOffice.org-rendered document made for a larger PDF document than did its Office-rendered cousin. I could see the changes by scrolling through the documents, but it would have been better if Acrobat listed out the changes on this overview page.
