Microsoft Office 2007 - Office Open XML

No comments :

When somebody came to you and ask "I cannot seem to open files with .pptx extensions. Can you?"

.pptx is the new Microsoft Office 2007 - Office Open XML format for PowerPoint presentations. Microsoft Office 2007 uses a new Office Open XML format that is not understood by previous versions of the software. For Microsoft Office XP and 2003 users, you may overcome this incompatibility by installing the Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack. After updating,
you may test your software with sample Open XML documents provided by Anyway, it is recommended for users to install all High-Priority updates from Microsoft Update before downloading the Compatibility Pack.

If you don't really like this new format, you might consider to sign a petition of "NO to the Microsoft Office format as an ISO standard", please visit
