+ - Microsoft uses legacy formats to push OOXML->

The National Archives have made a deal with Microsoft to set up virtual machines running old versions of Windows and Office to access the legacy files to prevent them being lost forever.

The report, although interesting, seems like another marketing attempt by Microsoft to push OOXML as a 'standard' format and makes me wonder why these legacy files aren't just converted to ODF?"
