The suggestion that you can move a file to a USB drive and print is incorrect. For example, files that have been touched at all by "Write" are basically unreadable by any other word processor known to man. Most of the other "Activities" on the XO have no analogs on other platforms, so there is no way to print most XO files, from a USB device or otherwise, at all!

That is completely false and incorrect. The odts and rtfs produced by write can be read by abiword--the spacing is a little off, but if you convert the file to a .doc you can read it in word, and the spacing and formatting is perfect.
