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.

Hogwash MollyC.

The ODF format is extensible and at its core is a text based XML document. So you are telling me, there is no way MS could embed these "features" into that if they wanted?

That would suggest that they are embedding binary data into their files, which is a poor solution but still could be handled via an extension.
