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."

Those formats you call are going to be the dominant, you want it or not, you don't like it I can see that, but your patological behavior is just to think people should want what you want anyway.

How do you think Microsoft got their formats as to be as dominant as they are now? They didn't do it by saying "Oh, Lotus and WordPerfect formats are dominant, so why bother?"
