The X Files

New File Formats

.DOC => .DOCX .PPT => .PPTX .XLS => .XLSX What does this X mean?

The Goal of Open Office XML

to enable the implementation of the Open Office XML formats by the widest set of tools and platforms, fostering interoperability across office productivity applications and line-ofbusiness systems, as well as to support and strengthen document archival and preservation, all in a way that is fully compatible with the large existing investments in Microsoft Office documents.
Lets break that down

Open Office XML

Nothing to do with Open Office or ODF Folder of files compressed with ZIP Open Standard : ECMA-376

Microsoft Apple Barclays BP British Library
