I for one will be keeping my documents in a *standard* format...ODF.
So will I.
A must admit, I did not follow the discussion in detail and all the time, but did OOXML gain a special power to ban ODF in some way by the... (well, most people seem to call it) "purchase" of this ISO standard? Maybe the combination of ISO and M$ sounds great and safe for certain large enterprises when they evaluate new products which their 5000 employees will have to use for the next five years.
But why should ODF become uninteresting for the "normal" users? And ODF does not need a 80% market share of the "document handling business" in the enterprises to survive properly in the average household, does it? (Is the main danger public institutions switching to OOXML-only altogether in a short time while there won't be (really) free reader tools available? This is the only kind of force I can imagine right now to impress John Doe.) Please tell me whether I'm too naïve or short-sighted at the moment. Most comments here just sounds to me like the apocalypse is near and everyone not wanting to be an outsider will have
to use OOXML tools from now on and prod ODF down the cliff.
Man, I don't want to lose my "ODF(->PDF)" routine which I could even explain to my parents...
