Unfortunately, it's not that easy. At work we run an application that
reads and convertes MS Office documents via OpenOffice.

By the way, telling your clients to upload again in a different format
is never an option, especially if the files are generated from
automated systems. They will just choose a different provider that
doesn't required them to make changes to their existing systems.

I am asking because there is a plugin from Novell that works with other
versions of OpenOffice/Linux (Ubuntu and Suse) but we use CentOS/RHEL,
so I need to get that version running.
