Gnome "The GNOME Foundation has issued a statement in response to recent accusations that it has been supporting the acceptance of Microsoft's Office Open XML format as an ECMA standard at the expense of the Open Document Format, the open standard used by, KOffice and other free software office applications. However, whether the statement's attempt at logical rebuttal will do anything to reduce the emotions or altruism behind the criticisms is anybody's guess."

Well, love it or hate it OOXML is here to stay, you better implemented it and promote ODF, just like .DOC, most of us don't like it, but denie its existence or ban it just affects the users.

So, I think the GNOME project is doing the rigth think, always thinking with the cold head for the sake of the user and not jumping into attacks that won't lead to anywhere but isolation.
