Not to be overly pedantic, but CSV is not a Microsoft-specific format.  
CSV stands for "Comma Separated Value" and it's a very simple format.  
Lots of software can handle it on all platforms. I can view them even on 
my Android phone.

That said, most Windows systems are set up by default to open a CSV file 
in Excel, but that doesn't really have bearing on the format itself.
