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.

This is probably one of those "IP infringements" Steve Ballmer was talking about. No doubt he is hoping people will get hooked on OXML and then in a few years, everyone who used it in OO.org will have to switch to MS Office because of lawsuits.

Contrary to popular belief (in Redmond), Linux users, developers, and advocates aren't stupid, Ballmer. We can read your (small) mind.
