Re: Yup It's so easy to walk away from Microsoft
It's not about "accepting", it's about "getting business done".
As a service provider you align with what your client provides, if LibreOffice fits that's fine, if it does not, MS Office's license is just part of the cost of doing business.
Adobe's licences are more less the same, your client provides photoshop files only compatible with the latest version that your free software can't handle right? Well, the Adobe license is part of your cost of doing business.
Sometimes you are in a position to recommend technology to a client, or help a startup pick what they will use, and you can then push as much as you like towards your preferred technology.
But if you try to take a stance and tell a client "yeah no, don't send me .docx files" or "don't send me psd files" and try to put it on them to align with your preferences instead of the other way around, you'll be "that weird guy they stopped doing business with".
