Google to ISO: Say no to OOXML

filbranden filbranden writes  |  more than 6 years ago

filbranden (1168407) writes "Google has called for ISO member bodies to reject Microsoft's Office Open XML document format during the current voting period, which ends March 30. In an entry at the company's official blog, Google's open-source programs manager says that Microsoft's document format is redundant and has technical flaws. Google has backed the competing OpenDocument Format (ODF), which has already received ISO approval."

HD-DVD or Blu-Ray: which is more F/OSS friendly?

filbranden filbranden writes  |  more than 6 years ago

filbranden (1168407) writes "I'm no expert on the formats for hi-def DVDs, and I have no opinion on which is better. But I wonder which of them is more open and friendlier to F/OSS. That means, which of them has less DRM, which is less patent-encumbered, are there open source software players for any of them? HD-DVD? Blu-Ray? Both? None of them?"
