Why The Acrimony About File Formats?

Wednesday, 2007-January-24 at 11:28

Many have said that the debate over something as mundane as file formats is becoming acrimonious.  They wonder why that is.  For what it is worth, I will point out just two examples of where this all came from.  This is done in the hope that people will continue to publicize such shameful behavior.  I would love to see "Whose Finances Are On The Line?" and "What's Wrong With Choice?" show up on Yahoo News, CNN, major newspaper sites, and other news organization sites, telling how fears of losing a monopoly can motivate all sorts of underhanded deeds.
