Microsoft v. World: It's on.

While they were busy tearing down their pay wall, the good people at the New York Times decided to throw in some bonus good news:IBM is throwing its weight behind a free office suite on the Open Office platform, called Lotus Symphony. The hope is that by adding more credibility to a standard already supported by Google and Sun, the Open Office format can trump Microsoft's proprietary "open" format. That's right, folks. Combine that with the news of Microsoft's European anti-trust ruling, and I think we might just have a smackdown brewing.

And while I'm not rabidly anti-Microsoft, I do like a good fight.

That said: it's on.
