LXer: EC reluctant to recommend OpenDocument

Published at LXer:

European Commission officials, unhappy there may be two competing ISO document standards, want industry players to work together. [We have been trying to get Microsoft to work with ODF since its inception. The EC should just point out to Microsoft that they have had plenty of opportunity to participate. - dcparris]

As I mentioned in reference to a similar article, Microsoft has historically and repeatedly demonstrated a lack of willingness to work with the rest of the software community. Their focus, as always, is "running the whole show" for their own benefit. Although not good news, it is not entirely surprising.

PS: Let me add that the full page flash ad that CNET runs before you get to the article is annoying. (I know you cannot control CNET's site, but that does not remove the fact that it is annoying.)
