Re: [tdf-discuss] Re: ANN: ODF 1.2 Candidate OASIS Standard Enters 60-Day Public Review, prerequisite for balloting as OASIS Standard


Le 2011-06-25 16:35, Robert Derman a écrit :
This could eventually destroy ODF as a viable world standard if at some point some software company or organization comes up with a popular program (example Microsoft) that embeds fonts so that anyone editing the document, viewing it, or printing it uses the same font chosen by the original author. No computer standard is likely to survive long term as long as adamant decisions are (carved in stone) and not left to future users to contramand if deemed expedient.


While not agreeing that it will destroy ODF, I do agree that the approach to ODF needs to be proactive in order to remain competitive and, at the very least, try to lead the pack as far as document formats. From what I understand from the discussion, there is still room for innovation and LibreOffice is well positioned to offer some leadership in such proposals.

Cheers,

Marc
