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 OpenOffice.org 2.02 is now available for Windows for free download by registered Novell users.

I guess the feling I have can be described as "cautious optimism"... The fact that OOo from Novell will be able to read/write another file format is not a bad thing. And users switching from MS Office to OOo will have one less thing to worry about...
