Gnome "The GNOME Foundation has issued a statement in response to recent accusations that it has been supporting the acceptance of Microsoft's Office Open XML format as an ECMA standard at the expense of the Open Document Format, the open standard used by OpenOffice.org, KOffice and other free software office applications. However, whether the statement's attempt at logical rebuttal will do anything to reduce the emotions or altruism behind the criticisms is anybody's guess."

Microsoft isn't the only suite that supports it, IIRC, Apple's iWork 08 also supports OOXML.

Can you tell me how much of OOXML Apple has been able to implement, how much compatibility they have with Office 2007 and can you point me to the test suite that Apple and everybody else is using so they can work towards a 100% implementation?

This is my very point. Coming up with an exceptionally basic spreadsheet and then opening it up in Numbers and Gnumeric doesn't prove a thing.
