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.

So the game is now rigged because MS has the majority of users and a format that moves those users forward without sacrificing their existing data wheras ODF has issues interoping with other ODF implementations? I see intellectual dishonesty, but it isn't eminating from me.

Do Sun/IBM have branch offices in OSNews forums now?
