You don't need to keep software vendors out of ISO standardization procedures. Because they have first hand experiences with OOXML solutions. Salespersons are perfectly skilled to sell Office Open XML to ISO committees because OOXML is essential for them, it is crucial for their business and their customers. Voices for Innovation started a petition in favour of Office Open XML standardization. A website from Microsoft. Micro means small, as in SME (small and medium enterprises).

ECMA (essentially a Microsoft proxy) has published a document to counter all the contradictions submitted by countries against the Fast Track. This document can be seen as the core of the counter-arguments by Microsoft to convince National Bodies that OOXML is a good thing. A very informative document on which arguments Microsoft will use to discuss with other stakehoders during the forthcoming meetings.

Microsoft debunks Andy Updegrove. But the truth is: We suggest you to rely on credible sources. <NO>OOXmL gets it right.

Microsoft puppets, such as Initiative for Software Choice (CompTIA), or Association for Competitive Technology (ACT), are kicking the ODF bill in California advocating for 'let the user choose'. Does the users really choose their file format? Of course not.

Microstone, a stone company that had the global monopoly on the production of stones, went bankrupt in the 19th century. But nobody knows when exactly, the date was saved in an OOXML spreadsheet :-)

We have more then 104 countries, and we don't know what is happening in most of them. What about Pakistan? Oman? Iraq? Russia? Will they vote? When is the deadline to submit comments? I mean one country, one vote is the rule, so every country is important. Let's call your Standardisation Body to find out what is happening...

The petition started last thursday got 10.000 signatures in less than a week. Remember that signing the petition is only a first step, it is more important to submit comments to your standardisation body.

Rumors coming from differents sources are mentioning that Intel is supporting OOXML in some countries, and want to defend the application of the standard to become an ISO norm. Intel and Microsoft used to be a good tandem in the past, and they are still probably in tandem today. Intel was also an ECMA member, and voted for the ECMA-376 specification.

FSFE is asking 6 questions to all standardisation bodies: "The following six questions relate to the application of the ECMA/MS-OOXML format to be accepted as an IEC/ISO standard. Unless a national standardisation body has conclusive answers to all of them, it should vote no in IEC/ISO and request that Microsoft incorporate its work on MS-OOXML into ISO/IEC 26300:2006 (Open Document Format)."

I invite you to read the comment on my previous post in Denmark, where I was suspecting all of those companies to be Microsoft puppets. I was not far from the truth.
