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 think adding support for the MS XML format is quite legal for the Novell people now, but... how about the ethics?

Do you think is good take a full application done by a lot of people in the community, adding some proprietary features and distribute it with no return to the community?
