Got a link? I don't remember you ever giving them a hard time over OOXML
support. And you somehow forgot to answer about Sun.

So no problems with you if Apple helps MS develop ODF? Don't I recall you
saying several times on Groklaw that you have a Mac and have an iPod too?
Don't you realize you are subsidizing Apple's participation in Ecma?
And how about pushing on IBM to open source its software? You did realize
that Symphony is OOo 1.1 with a new GUI, didn't you? Try running the
OOo 1.1Easter Egg drill on it.
