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 issue n4cer that people have with it, isn't the fact that its an openstandard, but whether Microsoft, when they improve upon that standard, will they submit the changes back to the ECMA/ISO so that the specifications can be updated - thats the big concern.
