An anonymous reader writes "SoftMaker Office ( http://www.softmaker.com/english/of_en.htm ) runs on Windows, Windows CE and Linux. the 2010 version brings ODF Import/Export capabilities. Even if this support is relatively new, it seems that SoftMaker Office 2010 (TextMaker) is more ODF compliant than OpenOffice Writer 3.2.1 ( http://www.openoffice.org/product/writer.html )
The tests were done using toture test files from another competitor (ThinkFree Office, that lacks of ODF capability) and the story can be found here :

For validation, I used the official ODF validator :

Even if both product were not perfect, only TextMaker gave me a valid ODF file (from a simple document, though)

More tests are to follow but it is quite astounding that OpenOffice is not 100% compliant yet..."
