Features, Office The news of OpenOffice.org's third major release has generated quite a bit of buzz on the internet for many reasons, one of which being that it now runs natively on a Mac (sans X11). ZDnet has posted a screenshot gallery of OpenOffice.org 3.0 for those who have yet to try the hot-off-the-press application.

IMO PDF support is a much bigger thing then ODF, since it seems to mean they are just giving up with pushing XPS as a serious format.


I haven't seen any signs of MS dropping XPS. Microsoft just couldn't earlier include the PDF-exporter with Office 2007, since Adobe didn't want them to.

However, it has been a downloadable plugin since the release. XPS has been downloadable plugin, too, but probably because of antitrust reasons.

Now that PDF is standarded by ISO, Microsoft can include the PDF-support in Office without Adobe's permission.
