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."

DCOP was written because CORBA was a God-awful mess

Well, try to fix a mess with another mess like DCOP is ridiculos.

Users don't care about formats. They open a file, it opens and they work with it.

Not technically, but if they see that there documents are not suported in n suite just because some developer tryied to puch an agenda it is.

But you do know that.
