TurboLinux Agrees to Support OpenXML

Thursday, July 12, 2007

CNN Money has a story about Turbolinux agreeing to support Micro$oft's
OpenXML document format
(http://money.cnn.com/news/newsfeeds/articles/prnewswire/AQM04009072007-1.htm)
for the Asian market. M$ needs a backdoor into the Asian market and
TurboLinux may be key to them establishing an acceptance by porting
OpenXML translations to Asian languages.

M$ is also gaining headway into having it recognized as an "open"
standard for documents. I enclosed the word "open" since Open XML is
to a great degree as open only to the point M$ wants it to be. Meaning
its still proprietary software in essence and not as open as Open
Source. M$ only opens mechanisms for other software to translate to
and from it Open XML MS-Office formats. Nothing more.
