Linux and Windows interoperability with OpenXML

In the past, I have been less than flattering over Microsoft’s OpenXML document format. Make no mistake, an open file format is definitely a must-have but is OpenXML the right one?

In fact, it can open up whole new opportunities for Linux coders to produce documents in a Microsoft-friendly format.

In fact, come February next year, OOXML will almost certainly join ODF as an ISO standard.
