Interesting, after 100 lines I stop reading this promotionnal articles, really good FUD (wikipedia):
Microsoft is hosting a discussion on Windows and Linux between its two top Linux consultants. Martin Taylor and Bill Hilf talk about the various OS

"We believe the way to integrate software, and the way to get software to work in a heterogeneous environment, is through promoting open standards"
a Funny response of a
slashdotter below.... so true and more to read here
Can somebody hit Bill with a clue-by-four and ask him about
1. Samba, and why the Samba project had to reverse-engineer everything?
2. Microsoft Office, and the hoops OpenOffice.org had to jump through to reverse-engineer their document storage format?
3. NTFS, and why Linux still can&39;t support NTFS write natively (without using a MS DLL)?
4. All the hidden system calls that Microsoft uses internally, and which came up in the anti-trust case?


shame on You M$

A good article with a lot of points against OOXML, and why this file format MUST BE REJECTED by the ISO National Bodies. Microsoft’s position is hardening as the ISO vote on OOXML (DIS 29500) in Geneva approaches at the end of this month. We know more clearly now how Microsoft and its proxy group, ECMA, will position Microsoft’s OOXML specification in advance of the vote. In short, Microsoft is betting that its influence with National Bodies will allow it …
