The chat files: Jeff Waugh on "Poop" and "Pita"

,----[ Quote ]
| A statement as clear as "MS delivered OOXML to ECMA as-is MS make the
| decisions about changing it we're drilling for docs" was missed which lead to
| a lot of confusion in the Gnome user community. According to some unconfirmed
| rumours a popular SCO case blogger was so pissed that the person considered
| to switch from Gnome to another Desktop environment. I find it nice that the
| Gnome Foundation "drilled" Microsoft for more documentation. But maybe that
| was soo wrong, too? What if the amount of documentation helped them to sell
| their "standard" to ISO?

The podcast was a set-up involving Miguel de Icaza as well, sources say. They
pulled a Doug/Brian Jones routine for the monopolist, says another.
