So, Novell are pushing OOXML?
Absolutely not. It’s true that Novell will have support for Microsoft/ECMA OOXML in SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 Service Pack 1, plus openSUSE 10.3 and onwards. But ODF remains the default format, it’s the format that Novell recommends. And Novell remain an active member of the ODF Alliance. The OOXML code is available to anyone else who wants it. NeoOffice seems to already have taken advantage of this fact.
