The Microsoft-ISO Debacle

Daniel Lemire, Weblog, Apr 02, 2008
Commentary by Stephen Downes

So ISO has approved the Microsoft Office Open XML format. I also consider this to be a debacle. As the Washington Post reports, "claims of foul play in the voting process may come back to haunt the software giant when the European Commission concludes its latest antitrust investigation of Microsoft's business practices." And "One ISO official from Norway has already spoken of 'serious irregularities' in the voting process in his country." I will say, this all certainly underscores my current opinion of the ISO process.More from Jon Udell.
