"First of all, I will like to point out that the format of documents produced by Microsoft Office 2007 is not OOXML (Ecma 376).



Martin Bekkelund exposes Microsoft's claims for MS-OOXML on the Apple side, and you can only open, not create or save an MS-OOXML document in any of Apple's programs. Makes me wonder whatever happened to all those MS-OOXML converters that Microsoft promised when Office 2007 hit the scene in late '06.

And now, Google comes down against MS-OOXML and in favor of ODF:

In September 2007, the original request to ISO was defeated. After further technical analysis of the specification along with all the additional data available on OOXML, Google believes OOXML would be an insufficient and unnecessary standard, designed purely around the needs of Microsoft Office.... We join the ODF Alliance and many other experts in our belief that OOXML doesn't meet the criteria required for a globally-accepted standard. (An overview of our findings and sample technical issues unresolved are posted here.)... A document standards decision may not matter to you today, but as someone who relies on constant access to editable documents, spreadsheets and presentations, it may matter immensely in the near future.
