    | Rob Weir, co-chairman of the OASIS Open Document Format (ODF) technical
    | committee, says the blatant committee backing around the world to have the
    | standard ratified was disconcerting. He says in several countries, countries
    | voted yes at the last minute and were “heard of no more. It makes a mockery
    | of the system.”

    | Standards body the Open Document Format (ODF) Alliance closed ranks with the

    | occupying the minds of many in the IT industry – not all of them as

    | SCO Group; the company has been loudly rattling its patent sabres, claiming
    | ^^^^^^^^^
    | earlier this year that Linux violated mote than 235 Microsoft patents.
    | Whether Microsoft goes beyond mere sabre rattling and whether SCO manages
    | anything more than a last gasp is also a question of how you evaluate the
    | course of court proceedings so far.
