New MS trying to kill ODF
In a move some think has the potential to stall the adoption of OpenDocument Format (ODF) as an international standard, Microsoft has joined a group that takes part in the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) voting process to standardize ODF.

...

In a statement attributed to Jason Matusow, Microsoft's director of standards affairs, the company said its representative to the INCITS committee, Jim Thatcher, will have no impact on the ODF standardization voting process. Instead, he joined the group to put himself in good standing to promote Open XML as that standard moves through the ISO process.

"I'm not trying to kill this format. I'm just joining the group tasked with ratifying to put myself in a position to push something else."

They're not even trying to be subtle.

New He contradicts himself
Since the point of a standard is to have only one for a given purpose, pushing another one is trying to kill the first one.

Spouting illogical BS that sounds reasonable enough to fool the non-techs. Yep, he's from Microsoft.

Choose Life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose a fucking big television, choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players and electrical tin openers. Choose good health, low cholesterol, and dental insurance. Choose fixed interest mortgage repayments. Choose a starter home. Choose your friends. Choose leisurewear and matching luggage. Choose DIY and wondering who the fuck you are on a Sunday morning. Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing, spirit-crushing game shows, stuffing fucking junk food into your mouth. Choose rotting away at the end of it all, pishing your last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, fucked up brats you spawned to replace yourself. Choose your future. Choose life... But why would I want to do a thing like that? I chose not to choose life. I chose somethin' else. And the reasons? There are no reasons. Who needs reasons when you've got heroin?
