Corel, despite being on ODF committee, has no plans to include it in new software. How strange?

Filed under: Uncategorized — ctrambler @ 12:31 pm

At open source weblog, Corel is quoted as citing "No customer demand" (Haven't we heard that term frequently) for not having plans to put ODF in its new software. This is despite the fact that it is on the ODF committee. How strange?

The article itself is good exercise in exposing Corel's contradiction. Hence, I recommends you read it if you want to see how absurb the reason is.

The bottom line, I believe, is that it is a business decision that has more to do with maintaining relationship with a big software giant.

That is why since I started this blog I decided to only believe so-and-so is supporting anything when I see that something appears in their software. Not a moment before.
