LXer: Probe into votes on Microsoft standard

Published at LXer:

The European Commission is investigating the process under which a key Microsoft document format could be adopted as an industry standard - a move that would carry significant commercial benefits for the software company. Officials at the European Commission's competition directorate have written to members of the International Organisation for Standardisation, asking how they prepared for votes in September and later this month on acceptance of Microsoft's OOXML document format as a worldwide standard. The ISO process has been widely criticised, however, with some members of national standards' bodies accusing Microsoft and its rivals of attempting to influence the vote.
