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."

Hiev, Its obvious from your posts on this site that you love the gnome project, perhaps even worship it, but be told... it is not the messiah, its just a naughty boy.

Gnome seems to think that being successful on the desktop means producing a second class version of windows. Gnome should follow KDE,s lead and publicly reject ooxml.
