MS style, Adobe style

MS style, Adobe style: Matt Asay contrasts the way PDF 1.7 reached ISO standardization with the process surrounding Microsoft's 6000-page documentation of MS Office formats in XML. This difference was echoed in the Slashdot commentary on the subject (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, etc). Related: Blu-Ray politics; Gates on Flash then and now.

Update: Keith Peters has a direct quotation from this year's comments on Flash from Bill Gates. I included the link because he's saying pretty much the same thing as he did in 2005 about Flash & Silverlight, with charmingly bizarre additions such as "I mean, Flash, the decisions were made before the Internet existed."
