Open Office and IBM_NYT Article


NYT IF you are interested in Open Office software you want to read this article in today’s NYT.

I.B.M historically has not been “with it” in competition with MS. But now that the Big Blue is not so big in this arena, they’re hooking up with us MS rebels in the Open Source cause. I hope this is good news and they’re not bringing their bad mojo into the camp.

There was a time IBM could be where MS is now. In fact there would be no MS. But they went the way of Ma Bell and stumbled over their own blind sided hubris. Have they eaten enough humble pie to have seen the light and understand what Open Source means? Or, are they coming in thinking they’ll run the show?

Call me paranoid but I’ve seen this company do just that. -30-
