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.

Why do you continue to ignore that I can include an AX control in ODF and achieve the same situation you continue to promote as unavoidable in OOXML. There is no difference. I include a proprietary component in an open format, thus potentially blocking full fidelity rendering on another platform, making ODF just as much of a one-way street.
