Microsoft's Open XML format overcame its final stumbling block and is moving forward as an official ISO standard. The file format had been held back earlier this year by claims that the voting process was rushed and that Microsoft's specification information was incomplete.
Open XML's approval is a big win for Microsoft because now the company can more easily push its Office software suite on government agencies that require open file formats.
