A Human Movement

Well, it is my lunch time, and I am sitting here reading about


... I wish josh was around to help me navigate the politics of the current war between OO and Microsoft... it seems that Microsoft is releasing a new MS Office 2003 on October 2003, and there are all sort of audacious aspects to it... for instance, Office 2003 will be able to lock the documents it creates meaning they will not be able to be opened in older office editions (9x - 2000) ... they are also making it such that if a person with out Office 2003 does want to open a 2003 created document, they WILL be able to do so in MS internet explorer - meaning internet explorer will have more use then just browsing the net, it will be a essential decoder to those not buying but using office 2003 locked documents....

there seems to be a critical turn occuring right now to, as Open Office and Sun have already started to save documents as XML suites.... but MS Office 2003 is stripping vital XML info on documents, such that it can only be re-viewed in original format through Office 2003....

kind of weird.... and as I am looking to buy a new computer and use RTF/XML/PDF within database structures ... it is interesting to think about which way to go....

I think I know what Josh would say...

what would our resident pizza delivery guy say??

any thoughts?

Whereas understanding is a foundation
Whereas mind should move
Whereas things have limits
Resolved that knowledge is king.
