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."

MS has and always will play dirthy, and everytime he does all I see is curses to MS and curse your own luck and never think with a cold head to learn from your own misstakes

The biggest mistake is running around supporting other peoples' formats when you don't need to.

Don't want to support OOXML? fine don't, and lets see who is the real loser here, the freeworld or MS, but you don't need to much to figure out who is.

The reason why the non-Microsoft world is in this mess is because we've all had to play these games with formats. It's about time it ended.
