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 OpenOffice.org, 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."

"Microsoft Office."

FALSE.

DOC has critical mass behind it.
For OOXML to reach the same critical mass, MS must first force-upgrade each and every Office 2K/XP/2K3 user.
