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.

MS never tried to lock us in with proprietary file formats? So why do newer versions of MS Office have trouble reading files in MS's own formats generated by older versions?

You're right. We should just trust the world's biggest software company. They have our best interests at heart.
