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.

Just to make it clear: I don't think it's a bad move for Novel to include this. The only thing this discussion has made me realize is that ODF is still the better file format.

It also makes me realize how much the DOJ wasted their times going after IE...the real monopoly to break has always been the Office file format. Without it, Microsoft's monopolist dreams crumble.
