Editor's Note: Free as in... Vista?
Like many in the open source community, I am watching with some dismay Microsoft's reluctance to even contemplate shifting to OASIS formats for Office. Instead, as many more insightful than I have pointed out, they are behaving rather petulantly about the whole thing. Shifting to open standards, something everyone needs to do anyway, makes a lot of sense--otherwise Microsoft will lose Massachusetts as a customer.
