Even that this post is mostly directed at Portuguese people I must write it in English so that you, my foreign friend can understand what is happening [in Portugal] about OOXML vs ODF.
Recently a Portuguese group was established to serve the same purpose, to determine whether OOXML shall become an ISO standard or not and not surprisingly Microsoft did their homework and got not only the president seat but also half-a-dozen partners “inside” of it.
If you thought this was funny check this out! Apparently this bunch-of-impartial-tech-companies has rejected a proposal from Sun Microsystems (Portugal) to become an active part, arguing that “there are no empty chairs in the room used for the meetings”. H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S!!
I guess Sun Microsystem should spend a room with a couple more chairs, don’t you agree?
Some time ago I asked you to sign a petition against OOXML becoming a standard in Portugal. If you haven’t, what are you waiting for?
