I would like to say that I for one am apposed to adopting non-free
standards.  This is bad for everyone involved, as to use company A's new
standard, you invariably end up having to use a product by company A to
support it.  This alienates those who happen to be on a platform not
directly supported by company A.    It gets worse when company B is
involved and releases something not supported by company A's product.

I think the push should be a centrally adopted standard which is free to
use.  Profit should go to the company with the better product, not the
company who eliminates competition by closing the doors on participation.

Chaos is mathematical order beyond human perception.
Anarchy is a bunch of assholes fire bombing city hall.
