Open Letter to Yates of Microsoft September 26, 2005Posted by rjdohnert in Software reviews.
Everyone has an Open Letter to write these days. Open Letters seem to be popular among the Open source community. I don’t know if they feel the need to establish self worth. Anyway, here is another one from the KOffice team. Apparantly, they feel the need to explain that Koffice and others share the StarOffice.org/OpenOffice.org code base. Well excuse me, Microsoft seems to think so. I have one question, who the fuck cares? KOffice is not very important. Its the equivalent of Pages on the Mac. Basically, it may be good for home users but not a business setting in my opinion. But, they want to port to Windows which cant be an all bad thing but since Office 12 will be released with true, stable XML document standards Why oh why would I use that? My advice, you better make use of the office 12 XML schemas.
