LXer: Setting a New Standard

Published at LXer:

Without question, OOXML falls far short of being a universal office document exchange format. Considering Microsoft's enormous backward-compatibility commitments, I'd go so far as to say OOXML's own authors would probably agree ODF would be a superior format on which to base a new application. But with or without the ISO's blessing, OOXML is substantially more open than are Microsoft's legacy binary formats. As a user of on Linux who works in a mostly Microsoft-formatted world, I'm somewhat of a stakeholder in the ODF-vs.-OOXML horse race, and I'd like to see take advantage of this marginal boost in openness
