It is unfortunate that a lot of the key information needed to throw out Microsoft’s bid is being put behind bars of “access control”. So much for transparency and accountability. The convicted monopolists are reported to be everywhere trying to “buy out” objections and to stuff the BRM meeting with their “locked-in” partners. They are continuing to subvert the fragile ISO process with abuse of monopolistic power. Attending the BRM would be a good time to see these chaps squirm and try to buy the approval with FUD. OOXML MUST fail in Geneva in February. We don’t need multiple document standards. ODF has it’s shortcoming, but they are being worked on. It would be fun watching OOXML fail. Gotta get the tickets to Geneva soon. Any hotel recommendations?
