Yahoo! News just in regarding Microsoft--Quoted from

"Microsoft on Thursday bowed to pressure from governments to offer new free open source software that will allow its Office suite of programmes to handle documents in rival formats.

"The company said it would develop tools to build a "technical bridge" between its own Open XML document format and the OpenDocument format (ODF)."

Later in the article, Microsoft says it was pressure from governments...

"The company explained that the move was "in response to government requests for interoperability with ODF because they work with constituent groups that use that format". The tools will be developed with the help of French company Clever Age with input from India's Aztecsoft and Dialogika of Germany."
