PermaLink Go kick their butts! IBM snaps back at Microsoft over OOXML02/05/2008 03:38 PM
I am actually surprised more companies that are active with ODF haven't taken this route.  IBM didn't "sabotage" OOXML, Microsoft did it themselves by trying to pull a fast one on the international standards community.

http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20080204-ibm-responds-to-microsoft-ooxml-is-technically-inferior.html

ODF works. It works for everybody, not just Microsoft. I like it. A lot.

My favorite part of the Ars Technica article:

Citing technical and intellectual property issues, a growing number of critics believe that Microsoft's standards are flawed, restrictive, not adequately aligned with existing standards, or not conducive to broad third-party support. They argue that Microsoft should adopt ODF rather than fragmenting the office document space with its own alternative. Microsoft disagrees with much of the criticism and contends that OOXML is necessary because ODF lacks support for features that are used in Microsoft Office and cannot be adapted to provide clean backwards-compatibility with documents that are already in Microsoft's binary formats.

I'll point out that this is the same Microsoft that doesn't seem to give a green shit about backwards compatibility with Microsoft's own damn binary formats. Time after time, trying to do a save-as from a "newer" version of Word so that it can be read by even a recently-older version is a test of your sanity.

Compare and contrast: I have NSFs I created in Notes 2.x on OS/2 that still work just fine on Domino 8. On the web.

This stuff is exactly why ODF should be the one standard, not OOXML.
