Ontario LinuxFest makes an auspicious debut

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 199.164.56.5] on October 16, 2007 12:11 AM
"Among the many other topics discussed at Ontario LinuxFest was a completely objective comparison of Microsoft's OOXML document standard and OpenOffice.org's ODF document standard by Gnumeric maintainer Jody Goldberg, who has had to wade through both in depth. His summary is that OOXML is not the spawn of Satan, and ODF is not the epitome of perfection. Both have their strengths and weaknesses, and he sees no reason why we could not go forward with both standards in use."

Except that OOXML is *not* a standard... and that Jody is the yes-man for one of Satan's priests, namely Miguel.
