MSXML: defective by design
« on: August 29, 2007, 11:46:15 am »

A very interesting analysis of the way that Office 2007 works with saving documents to the supposedly open XML document format by MS:

And as you can see this only scrapes the surface of how this "format" is implemented, yet it has revealed exactly how proprietary it is without even going into a deeply technical realm.

An appropriate cartoon for the occasion, since MSXML seems to be getting more Yes votes than it should...
