Nice Clinton quote .. "If one candidate’s trying to scare you and the other one’s trying to get you to think, if one candidate’s appealing to your fears and the other one’s appealing to your hopes, you better vote for the person who wants you to think and hope."

Same goes for ODF/OpenXML don't you agree ;-) ?

In a recent video interview from Australia, Bruce Schneier talked about perceived risk and real risk. Indeed, this is similar to the recent upgrade to OOXML for 'security reasons' (why actually patch bugs when you can disable old file types?) ;-)

Stephen: Hardly, since "cementing a monopoly" doesn't really count as "hope"...

Happy Sunday :-)
