Don Christie, El Presidente of the Open Source Society and blogger on newspaper site Stuff, has written a pretty direct piece about the OOXML standard and processes that led to it. The article was written for and published in the Standards NZ magazine, where it ran next to an article from Microsoft’s Brett Roberts, who is in favour of OOXML.
The Standards NZ magazine is a paper-only publication, but Don has put the text of his article online here. It’s hard-hitting and well worth a read.
Update: Brett’s article is now online as well.
