Why oh why? (12/06/2007 08:32:41 AM)

It has intrigued me as to why by default the two leading productivity packages, OpenOffice.org and Microsoft Office, set their paper size to Letter when clearly all printers by default are set to A4. I mean seriously - who goes and buys a realm of 500 sheets of Letter sized paper (letter sized paper has a slightly shorter length)? It is pretty poor that neither software productivity packages or printers can agree on one default paper size.

My guess is that software developers should make A4 by default ;) I mean - how many letters have you written versus other documents requiring A4 size. Also, when you write a letter, did you buy special letter sized paper to print it out?
