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."

I try to offer a cd of windows open source apps to everyone I think might be interested. In all fairness only about half to a third of them are. If we all did that open source apps could gain a huge following. If open office had a larger share Microsoft would take ODF and interoperability more seriously. If Gimp ate half the photo shop market you might see adobe offer Photoshop with another pricing scheme.
