Microsoft Microsoft Office program manager Brian Jones, whose work has centered around the Open XML document format, now says the so-called format war with OpenDocument is officially over. The winner, he says, is both. Jones made the statement in a blog post over the weekend following the release by Novell of an Open XML translator for OpenOffice. The plug-in enables the free, open source productivity suite to open documents created in the Microsoft format, as well as saving OpenDocument files into Open XML.

Define open for me. There is a list as long as both your arms and ample evidence that OOXML cannot be implemented outside of Microsoft Office. I suggest you read it.

Really so the OOXML plug-in for OOo didn't happen and is all vaporware?
