An online service where end users and professionals can compare the output of different office suites - for their own documents!
A document may look nice on your screen while you are working on it in its native application, but that is just the outside. If the exchange formats are not implemented correctly, it might look like a sloppy mess to the person receiving the business proposal, invoice or report you worked so hard on. Officeshots.org was inspired by an open source project from the web standards world called browsershots.org.
Officeshots.org will help you make a better choice by letting you compare the output and other behaviour of a wide variety of applications. Does your corporate style - the technical basis for many documents - actually look consistent across the board of applications - from OpenOffice.org 3.0, Adobe Buzzword and Symphony 1.2 to Microsoft Office 2000 with the ODF addin from Microsoft - or the one from Sun Microsystems? And how does it look on Mac OS X in iWork? When you are in an acquisition phase, officeshots.org will help you do a reality check if that fancy new open source suite or that productivity package you can get a bargain deal at - actually does what it says. On the spot.
Right now the program is in closed Beta, and is expect to go public soon.
