link: IBM takes a stand against bad standards

I am biased in this OOXML saga, I admit. But what happened with the adoption of OOXML as a standard, using the fast track process instead of the normal one, is not fair.

And I am saying this just by looking into what happened in Romania regarding the vote, which is summarized by more enthusiast fellow looking at the process.

Since it appears Romania is not the only country whose committee was influenced (political or not), and due to the fact the people like me can publicly expose their thoughts, I think these signals were received.

So, IBM is taking a stand on these standardization bad practices : http://www.linux.com/feature/148750

So it should do.
