If this was a Ubuntu-promoted format, then is would be open source, and could be adopted by anyone. A mac user, or windows user can still use it, if those OS's chose to add it. Now when MS makes a format, it closes it down, so we will have to reverse engeneer it, and maybe we will get lucky and be able to read the file, and create one in 5 years, when the new format comes out.
