Sorry for stepping in so late in the discussion.
I have seen many messages, but they all miss the key issue:
TDF is FOR interoperability, which is a user (and a market) need.
TDF is not AGAINST Microsoft, although many of its founding members -
including myself - have been strong opponents of OOXML during the
We have worked inside committeees in order to improve OOXML, or - if you
prefer - to make is a less flawed standard.
TDF is FOR ODF, and being FOR ODF in a "strong" way means that you do
not support OOXML (but not to the point of creating problems to users
wanting to save in a specific document format).
Of course, TDF is also a member of OpenDoc Society (announcement in
early January) and is represented at the highest level inside OASIS.
Inside these bodies, TDF will fight FOR making ODF a successful document
standard over OOXML.
I would really like to handle the negative attitude to Oracle and the
OOo community. If you share the idea of being AGAINST Microsoft, TDF and
users, then we are happy if you choose the OOo community.
Happy 2011 to everyone. Ciao, Italo
