Microsoft to standardize Office formats November 22, 2005

Good news on the Microsoft front. Microsoft will be submitting their OpenXML formats to ECMA for standardization and to the ISO depending on ECMA’s stand. This is a good thing and kudos to Microsoft. This should resolve any fears that anyone considering OpenDocument has for OpenXML. I know I will probably wait for the news on the results before I upgrade either to OpenOffice or Office12. This will rid us of proprietary formats and will open up this space to whomever produces the better software.
