Google goes with the Open Standard, well done, but what’s with ODF? Why do you still have a proprietary format for your Google DOCS?

on a very interesting move to Open Standards, Google decided to give up developing for Google Gears and will focus their attention to HTML 5. So I see a future where the Operating Systems are completely irrelevant, we will only need a Web browser up and runnig and we will be able to do everything there.

Google is certainly embracing a lot of Open Standards, but when it goes to their Google Docs, they are certainly not. They calim to be able to import and export ODF, which is not completely truth(see what I wrote before about this).

And I know very well that Google claims that if you use their enterprise services and then want to leave, you can export everything, but seriously, we all know that it would come to many problems and costs of migration due to the fact that all documents under Google Docs are not Open Formats. I’m assuming Google wants to increase functionality to compete with MS Office, but my question is, why would someone want to migrate from one proprietary format(MS Office) to yet another proprietary format(Google Docs). I’m assuming Oracle/Sun and IBM will come soon with a ODF based competitor to Google Apps, then, we will see what the industry decides.

Apparently the new version of the EU EIF is becoming a joke!!If this article is true, the Big SW companies have bought some people in the EU Commission, it’s a really pitty:

OpenGL vs DirectX, what’s going on?

How is this possible, you get better results, compatibility with all major platforms and the Big Gaming companies still choose DirectX?

They have absolutely no technical arguments to prefer DirectX, but of course they are all bought by Microsoft. But why? The answer is simple, I know a lot of gamers who only use Windows for gaming, because their games are not compatible with Linux nor Mac. Here I found an article about the topic, hope you like it:
