Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Groklaw has a good discussion
[link|http://www.groklaw.net/article.php?story=20060706064747376|MS: OK. OK, we'll set up an "OS" project to build an ODF killer. Er, we mean translator.]

[link|http://blogs.sun.com/roller/page/webmink?entry=kicking_and_screaming|Kicking and Screaming] is worth reading too.
Have fun,

New The camel's nose is under the tent.
They're providing it. Not as well as others do, even for MS Word. They're hoping they can hold off ODF by making it inconvenient - my prodiction is they can't.

Major clients are going to start complaining that "Your support of ODF sucks rocks. Maybe we should migrate to Star Office, ya think?"

That'll be as magical as an Amdahl coffee mug on the desk used to be when the IBM mainframe salesguy came around with his quote.

New And.. 'dmarker'
[link|http://www.groklaw.net/users.php?mode=profile&uid=5880| Doug Marker] is in the lists.. looks to be about 40 yrs experience there, (run-outta-town on that peculiar specialty ... pretend high dudgeon; escalate gratuitious nastiness: 'Win'-assholish-game?)

Damn, had almost forgotten about that ugly episode, too.

As to Beast kicking&screaming (it is all they have ever known) - one would hope that a Regime change in DC + the increasing worldwide dyspepsia with Beastware FUD and fragility - will answer that question, too. Unless of course - Diebold manages to bring it off, again [odds??]

Jeez, ya don't need much techno-cuth to see the transparent waffling within those mealy-mouthed Official pronouncements: clearly they are betting 'the past is prologue' - that nobody much in Govt., still! in 2006 - even knows how to make a new directory. Or how to select a Save format. What if they're right about that?

I could go on Oprah touting his evilness. Write articles. I would be famous. Fat, but famous.
