"People were demonstrating today in Oslo in front of the ISO SC34
meeting against the adoption of Microsoft OOXML as an ISO standard, and
especially against the behaviour of Standards Norway, who voted Yes to
the specification, despite a lack of support by a majority of the
technical committee. Geir Isene is reporting about the demonstration...
We are not here today in order to bash Microsoft. We are here because we
believe in open standards. We are not even here today because we are
opposed to OOXML. We are here because we are opposed to OOXML as an ISO
standard. We are not here because we want to discredit the ISO. We are
here because we want to defend ISO's integrity. We are here because we
want to draw attention to the scandalous behaviour of the people in
Standard Norway whose job it is to represent Norwegian users and software
vendors. And we are here because we want to prevent the adoption of a
damaging IT standard in Norway... It's never over until the fat lady
sings, and this fat lady only just got started...
