Thanks!A question to Intel
2005-11-29T10:54:52+01:00charlesFollowing up the Microsoft announcement about their so-called new open file formats for office documents, I couldn&#039;t help but notice that Intel was part of the consortium backing the Microsoft initiative. Here&#039;s why it is suprizing at first glance: Intel was also part of the OpenDocument meeting in Armonk, New York, and it is also very close to contributing code to OpenOffice.org .
The rationale behind the decision of Intel to back Microsoft is clear if ...A recognition by ommission
2005-11-26T11:57:46+01:00charlesUPDATE: Here&#039;s the OpenOffice.org&#039;s official press release on the topic.
By announcing that its new format would be standardized, open, and XML based, Microsoft has also announced to the world that it had lost the initiative in the Office wars.
Microsoft latest move is the evidence that OpenOffice.org, and the OpenDocument Format are leading the way when it comes to innovation in the Office technology and the vendor-independant data formats. So thank you...Why OpenOffice.org is not the same as OpenDocument Format
2005-11-01T10:03:19+01:00charlesToday I would like to explain something that is important to understand: the difference between OpenOffice.org (OOo) and the OpenDocument Format (ODF).
OpenOffice.org is the name of the international free and open source office suite project that was started by Sun and that has now grown to the success we know.
The OpenDocument Format is a document format specification that is both open and standard, and that has been developed by many parties (including mainly Sun and t...Corel gets back its sanity (no exorcists were needed)
2005-10-26T11:32:09+01:00charlesWell, our good friends at Corel finally realized how out of their depth they were and so went back on their last week&#039;s assertions about the OpenDocument Format.
That was not because of what I wrote by then , but I&#039;d like to thank Gary Edwards for this:

2005-10-19T12:18:38+01:00charlesSpotted on the OpenOffice.org News Channel (let&#039;s call it this way from now on) and here , the extraordinaire and magical interview from two managers of.... COREL ! (Yes! there are even two managers working at the same time at Corel on WordPerfect!)
Okay, let&#039;s close the fun time and move on. I read their interview and turned hilarious but also sad at Corel&#039;s comment.
According to them, OpenOffice.org is not serious a competitor because it lack...OpenOffice.org is 5 years old today

FIVE YEARS OF OPENOFFICE.ORG, MORE TO COME
13 October, 2005 - 1400 UTC
On this day, five years ago, the fledgling OpenOffice.org community
provided the first public access to the source code donated from
StarOffice by Sun Microsystems. The OpenOffice.org community had
recently been formed, and declared it&#039;s intent &quot;to create, as a
community, the leading international office suite that will run on all
major platforms and provide ...OOoCon, Google, Open Document, Patents, PDF, Microsoft, and all the jazz
2005-10-04T12:27:48+01:00charlesBrought to you by your erratic and pompous servant, the news of the week:
-OOoCON 2005 is now over and I&#039;d like to thank everybody in the Slovenian team (http://si.openoffice.org) and the Italian community (http://it.openoffice.org) for having made this conference a truly unique moment. Especially, I&#039;d like to praise Urska Colner, Davide Dozza and Robert Ludvik for having managed to transform this event in a great feast of friends.
