Realistically, MS have Office 2007 based on MOOX so its going to get
export filters to and from ODF at some point. The irony is that while MS
was reluctant to provide any interoperability with the likes of OOo
previously its likely that they will have to actively encourage it now
and its the OOo advocates that are discouraging such development. That
does mark a significant shift. Whatever the rights and wrongs of it, its
going to happen and really that is the best MS can hope for even if they
manage to scrape through the ISO process. What a shame ;-)
