Microsoft Wins OOXML Race?

Microsoft has won the OOXML race by a huge margin (86% of votes were in support of the standard).

“In the final round of voting..three-quarters of the core members, including Britain, Japan, Germany and Switzerland, supported Microsoft’s standard, called Ooxml, according to the results document.

Of the 87 total national votes, only 10 opposed the standard: Brazil, Canada, China, Cuba, Ecuador, India, Iran, New Zealand, South Africa and Venezuela.” – iht”

Though ISO has not yet announced the decision (and wait till Wednesday, since ISO needs to inform its worldwide membership of national standards bodies of these results), the word is out that MS has won the OOXML race.
