[school-discuss] Open Formats vs Industry Standard formats

Dear Friends,

Free Software prgrammer Dale Gulledge reflects on the difference between 
industry standards and those that allow us to continue to work, not only cross-
platform, but across generations of software development. Dale claims to have 
kept a number of software companies in business single-handedly and I imagine a 
number of the rest of us can sympathize; but he points out that all we're 
really trying to do is preserve our work and preserve our ability to work on it 
more. I think you'll find his perspectives interesting.


Best wishes,

David Bucknell
