Internet & Networking We've been talking about the browser ballot screen for a while now, which led to some obvious questions we couldn't answer. As it turns out (and I completely missed this), Microsoft actually posted a fairly detailed description of its proposal [.doc] on its website last Friday. It details everything from what it means not to have Internet Explorer installed to what the ballot screen will look like.

Open approach and fair attitude

The step itself is luckily into the right direction.

But Microsoft's attitude and open and fair approach is visible in the simple fact that the document is published in proprietary format (.doc). If they don't like standards initiated by competitors (like pdf of OpenDocument), then they at least should use standards initiated by themselves (OOXML).
