I recently read an article about how the "Open XML" M$ format was artificially made super cumbersome and complex so that it makes open source software support it almost impossible.

The article was written by one of the Libre office collaborator who was saying that they are intentionally introduced bugs so that we never see a better adoption of it in open source tools.
