Microsoft in 2008: 10 Predictions

Microsoft Predictions for 2008: OOXML will get the ISO nod

In February, Microsoft's Open Office XML will be up for ISO standards consideration. Despite the best attempts of Microsoft's adversaries and critics to derail it, OOXML is finally going to get the ISO nod. That doesn't mean the OOXML vs. ODF/CDF battle won't continue, given that big government contracts stipulating "open" formats are at stake. But one more hurdle for OOXML's acceptance will be behind Microsoft in the new year.
