Readers Respond: Beware the Windows Monoculture
Its true that half a million subscribers dont need to know or care what platform runs Salesforce.com, but I can post a .doc or .xls file on a Web site or in e-mail and expect that it can be opened. Microsoft is doing everything in its power to retain its hegemony over document formats.
Until Microsoft Office, OpenOffice.org, Writely and others can exchange documents without downloading and cobbling in a half-baked conversion utility, interoperability will remain an issue.
