Its out already?

How well does it work with OpenDocument? Can it support the full feature set of OpenDocument? Can it interoperate with OpenDocument 1.2 or is it constrained to OpenDocument 1.0? Does it pass the OpenDocument compatibility test suite?

Given MS Office 2007 poor interoperability with earlier versions of MS Office, I wouldn't expect much of the interoperability with OpenDocument ... but I may be surprised.

Is there are review of this published anywhere? I hadn't even realised it was released.

You have mentioned this earlier on. Please expand on the so-called poor interoperability of Office 2007 with earlier versions of MS office? It seems to work great with users of Office 2000 and 2003. If you are going back to Office 97, then maybe.
