The figures seem to be good especially after having used the lower bandwidth options:
56Kbps dial-up till 2004
256kbps from 2005 starting - 2006 end
2Mbps since dawn of 2007

The Opendocument format used by the OpenOffice.org suit has become an ISO standard. As always microsoft is creating its own standard based on xml called the Office XML. I really hate it when people fork things at least when there is no significant difference in the goals - It's mere waste of energy - now somebody has to provide the Office XMl to/from ODF converter. I appreciate that this time around M$ has at least placing their specifications open. Only last week I was blaming about their proprietary formats which made it unfit for batch processing. Life is more fun when things are open - World, Open up!
