Micro$oft have introduced a new file format in Office 2007 which they claim is ‘open’ but looks to be extremely difficult to support.

If you have an earlier version of Word you’ll need an update from Micro$oft.

If you use OpenOffice or another WP then it’s going to be irritating but solutions are on the horizon: Right now my Ubuntu Gutsy system with OO2.3 can open but not save them.

Personally I am going to ensure I can read and write to the new format but whenever someone sends me one I am going to ask them why they don’t use a more widely supported format like the true open Open Document format.
