Adventures in a disconnected world

Confused..Office xml format, Metro and XAML?

Last few days before I start my new job and I think I am getting a little confused.

So I have an office document and I can save it as XML. If I print it, in the future, it will be converted into "Metro" format. In addition there is "XAML" which is a another way of serialising objects so why couldn't "XAML" have been used.. Why do I need so many different XML formats ?

If I send a document to a user on a different platform it seems that "Metro" would be the correct format to send it in as it is meant to be format that is readable on other platforms.

So if I am in office in the future what format will I save the document, at the moment it looks like a confusing set of options. Also as Wallace B. McClure points out in this posting http://weblogs.asp.net/wallym/archive/2005/04/27/404731.aspx it is vital that "Metro" is also implemented on legacy platforms otherwise there will be an almighty mess.

I am sure that this will become clearer soon but at the moment it does seem confusing and a lot of overlapping functionality

XAML is a XML way to describe an GUI, as far as I understood
