Open Standards in EU

Go Neelie!

Where interoperability information is protected as a trade secret,
there may be a lot of truth in the saying that the information is
valuable because it is secret, rather than being secret because it is
valuable... we should only standardize when there are demonstrable
benefits, and we should not rush to standardize on a particular
technology too early... I fail to see the interest of customers in
including proprietary technology in standards when there are no clear
and demonstrable benefits over non-proprietary alternatives.

Er werden geen namen genoemd, maar het is duidelijk dat dit niet alleen tegen Microsoft was, maar ook tegen het circus dat de ISO momenteel opvoert.
