Microsoft Amazingly Opens Office File Format Licensing

February 2, 2005
February 2, 2005 – (HOSTSEARCH.COM) – Microsoft has made the decision to loosen licensing around its Office file formats. Massachusetts has enacted a law prohibiting the purchase of proprietary software. With California and other states soon to follow Microsoft has told Massachusetts that they will comply with the law and open their Office file formats.

It would appear that the software industry giant is beginning to bend in the game of Microsoft against the World. With Microsoft increasingly involved in the open source movement it may not be too far off to see portions of the OSes going to an open license to maintain profitability and market penetration.
