This could lead to some very big things for Open sourse...
"IBM executives compare its ODF initiative with the support it gave to the open source system Linux by promoting its use in corporate data centers, support that helped make Linux very successful over the last several years."

The great thing about using cross-platform standards, is that you can migrate your stuff to another platform, open files using different applications, all without having to convert files.
