Info about the presentation "MS Office 2007: The Future is Here":

Microsoft Office 2007 has already proven itself to be the most radical redesign of Office since the toolbar. It will deliver massive amounts of value to end users, while creating even more value – and billable – for trainers, documenters, and developers. From the dramatically new user interface at the front end, to zipped, native XML open (!) file formats at the back end, live previews and integrated workflow via SharePoint in the middle, this isn't yet dad's office suite! There's so much more than can be described here. Get a jump on the new feel, features, and fun of Microsoft Office 2007, and test drive it for yourself!

Microsoft Office Open XML Formats Overview
Published: September 13, 2005

By default, documents created in the next release of Microsoft Office products will be based on new, XML-based file formats. Distinct from the binary-based file format that has been a mainstay of past Microsoft Office releases, the new Office XML Formats are compact, robust file formats that enable better data integration between documents and back-end systems. An open, royalty-free file format specification maximizes interoperability in a heterogeneous environment, and enables any technology provider to integrate Microsoft Office documents into their solutions.
The new Office XML Formats introduce a number of benefits not only for developers and the solutions they build, but also for individual users and organizations of all sizes.
