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."

Is not my job to highlight why OOXML sucks, I know it does but ODF is not a complete solution eather, but you and others are mixing reality with passion and using it just to prormote an anti MS agenda...

Blah, blah, blah, yadda, yadda, anti-Microsoft.

You do realise that with your little bit of Gnome promotion, and your promotion of Microsoft by telling us all helpfully that we're anti-Microsoft, you're perpetuating the very rumour that this article is about in that Gnome is helping Microsoft?

That may not be true, but that's what it looks like.

The ideology of "destroy MS long live to Free standar" is to wasted and is proved that is just makes it worse...

Not particularly interested in Microsoft. All we want is a document format everyone can use. If Microsoft doesn't like that, well, tough.
