10/04/2005 Archived Entry: "More on OpenDocument"
A very thorough article on the OpenDocument decision: Why OpenDocument Won (and Microsoft Office Open XML Didnít) by David Wheeler (thanks to Groklaw for the tip).
Bottom line: this is starting to sound like the "Internet" of office file formats, allowing true interoperability for the first time. Don't spend another dime on office software unless it supports (or will support) OpenDocument. (Right now that means OpenOffice, StarOffice, or WordPerfect for Windows users.) —brad
