Slashdotters never cease to surprise me. The imbeciles are taking Microsoft's move to stop ODF-only madates
as a move against open standards. In fact, it's the exact opposite. Roles have been reversed in the ODF v. OpenXML war
. The typical open source community is pushing for a one size fits all answer, when they know their solution doesn't support everyone, while Microsoft is pushing for choice. Completely backwards, I know, but people don't seem to see this. All they see is Microsoft opposing an "open standard." I only have one comment for that, tho: OpenXML is an open standard
. So, by saying Microsoft is opposing open standards is completely wrong.
