Novell and Ximian The first fruit of the recently announced Novell/Microsoft interoperability agreement arrived on Dec. 4, with Novell's announcement that its version of the OpenOffice productivity suite will now support the Microsoft Office Open XML format. The release candidate of Novell's modified version of 2.02 is now available for Windows for free download by registered Novell users.

So it's Openoffice that has to be compliant with MS office format, what about older version of office and .doc format?

So we are stuck with Microsoft's "Open" XML format which will kill ODF format good and proper.
