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."

Oh, and if all of you OOXML will be only used only in Office 2007 just show your ignorance, the OS, the .NET framework and tons of other applications will use it, think in OOXML as a TextProcessor format is plaint wrong.

Telling us that it is inevitable is not addressing the issues with it.
