  1. The nice thing about standards…
    is that there are so many to choose from. Don’t take this comment as I am disagreeing with the resolution; in fact I support it. However, there are at least two competing “open” office data standards, ODF (OpenDocument format, ISO/IEC 26300:2006) and OOXML (Office Open XML, ECMA-376, ISO/IEC 29500:2008, Microsoft owned).
