Microsoft File Format Approved

The Microsoft OOXML (Open Office XML) file format is now an official standard.

As I recall, Microsoft proposed this format in response to the movement to make the Open Office file format the main way to share documents. While I was fine with the Open Office approach, any common file format is a step in the right direction.

What about you -- which format would you rather see as a standard? And is file interoperability already moving in the right direction? Answers welcome in any format at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
