Rory is still on W95, I don't think Office 2007 runs on it

I would still like to see someone upload a 1.07GB wmv file

Office 2007 is XML file structure similar to Open Office and therefore open. It is therefore on average a smaller file than older MS Office versions.

--- and believe it or not, OO might be claimed to be "free' and easy to use --- it is not, and there are many, many cases where the only way to effectively transfer documents between organisations is still MSO.
