To: Microsoft, Re: OOXML

Shamelessly copied (and modified) from Chris Samuel, down under:

Dear Microsoft,


Due to massive irregularities in the voting process in ISO, the requirement to use patented media formats such as MP3, the enforcement of old date bugs in the standard, and the sheer inappropriateness of using the fast-track process for your massive XML document format OOXML I will not accept it as an agreed ISO standard, even though you managed to con enough people into voting buy enough votes for it.


p.s. please feel free to copy my copy to your heart's content, but please give credit for the original to Chris!
