Novell uses ODF

Novell logoYesterday, in a meeting on the beutifull Novell office in São Paulo, I was able to confirm that ODF is their document standard. Globally, for all Linux and Windows users. If they need to exchange documents with customers, they send in PDF.

I supose Red Hat, a 100% Linux company, is also in this direction. I just didn’t have the chance to confirm this with the folks I know in Red Hat. But I’m pretty sure its the same. By the way, Red Hat, together with IBM and Sun, is member of our local ODF Alliance Chapter Brazil.

  1. A few months ago (March) I got some files (business related) from someone in Red Hat and they were in .sxw format ( 1.x).
    I guess tis make sense as they probably were standardized internally to RHEL 4, which does not have 2.x, so no ODF support, but in the meantime RHEL 5 was released and probably they will move/already moved to ODF.
