To get over the problem of file format incompatiblity between different versions of Office documents, eXpresso is going to standardize on the 97-2003 format, and then add collaborative capabilities.
“Not surprisingly, Office 97-2003 document formats will continue to be the lingua franca of business and remain the common denominator most every PC or Mac user can view and edit. Therefore, when eXpresso releases its full support for Office files in early 2009, it will automatically convert all Office documents to these formats and give them all the real-time collaborative properties that eXpresso users have enjoyed with Excel since the beginning. Thankfully, eXpresso users won’t even have to think about formats.“
