The real reason for Massachusetts choosing OpenDocument format

$ ls -l get*
-rwxrw-r-- 1 $USER users 11617792 Oct 31 12:28 access-$CUSTOMER-HOWTO.doc
-rwxrw-r-- 1 $USER users 241002 Oct 31 12:28 access-$CUSTOMER-HOWTO.odt
-rw-r--r-- 1 $USER users 196751 Oct 31 13:13 access-$CUSTOMER-HOWTO.zip
-rw-r--r-- 1 $USER users 83624 Oct 31 13:12 access-$CUSTOMER-HOWTO.7z

Same document in each file.

DOC is MS-Word format, ODT is OpenDocument Text, ZIP is, well, a Zip archive and 7Z is a 7-Zip archive (both of the .doc)

Of course, odf is already gzipped. The results may be different if you gunzip it first.
