Not at the University of Aarhus - here the common standard is M$  
Word. And being a physicist gone bad (I've switched to medical  
research), it's even worse, since apparently medical doctors are  
nearly religious in their Word affections. I sent an abstract in pdf  
for a conference, and got it back with the instruction to resubmit as  
word-doc. It's quite sad I think, since universities in particular  
have a obligation to widen the horizon in stead of perpetuating a de  
facto monopole.
