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.

The ability to generate and process a document from somebody's program is important. Can you grep ODF? How easy is it to output an ODF from your own program? I don't like Outlook, for example, because I cannot access my emails from my own programs.


For the industry's vitality a key factor is the ease the format can be encorporated into new programs.
