What's the background (for ESC) to decide what leads to the best
software for users?
I apologize for repeating myself, but the ESC will decide upon positive
contributions, suggestions or requests. You suggest a feature, promote a
technology, contribute a new export filter.
It does not make any sense to take a decision in order to bash a single
company. We are in the market to promote free software and good ethics
in a positive way.
Most office suite users are looking for software able to create and
manage documents. They are looking for positive answers.
Or is it just a lack of communication?
I do not think it is a lack of communication. It is a different agenda:
TDS's is FOR free software, other people's one is AGAINST Microsoft.
Bashing Microsoft in the name of ethics is a total nonsense. Ethics is a
positive concept, and cannot be used to justify any negative action
