Actually everyone can look at the demo version of App Suite, including 
OX Text and OX Spreadsheet:

Exactly. ODF and OOXML are our natively supported formats that we can 
edit in the browser. Text and Spreadsheet are already available.

We work on the documents very different compared to Open Office or MS 
Office. One of our most important features is the document roundtrip. 
You can safely switch between editing with OX Documents and editing with 
your native application. And we have real-time communication to quickly 
distribute changes to other clients.

I just wrote a blog post that explains the technical details how we 
achieve it.


Best regards
