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.

It is still dependent on a single vendor. Understanding other people concern, Microsoft cannot keep their own promise. We are talking about an open format which has nothing to do with OSS developers because it is about datas. It is really clear Open XML is an example that Microsoft does not want to compete on equal field with other products using Open Document Format.
