    Open Office will not be implementing OOXML.. Microsoft is not
    implementing it, which means no one will be implementing it.

    Thus OOXML is no more than like a decoy duck that duck shooters will
    be using in ernest in a few weeks time.

    Open Office from Version 3 will however be able to read to some extent
    Microsoft Word 2007 documents (.docx). Admittedly OOXML documentation
    would be a useful resource but however cannot be fully relied on.

    Official confirmation here
    <http://www.microsoft-watch.com/content/interoperability/office_2007_fails_the_test.html>:Microsoft
    Office 2007 does NOT conform to ISO/IEC 29500.

    All those people who said Microsoft and OOXML should be given a fair
    chance--what do you say now?
