MS ooxml reader plugin for FF on Linux?!

Hard to believe, that perhaps MS is really seeing the light and working positively with the open source and open standards community by releasing a plug in for Firefox that allows people to read ooxml based documents.

If this story is anything to go by, it is a big move in the right direction. Alas, the MS’ untrusted reputation continues to precede it and we will have to wait and see if this really works.

UPDATE: The MS PR spin has the word “Brussels” in it. A need to appease the EU?
