Ray Ozzie, Microsoft’s chief software architect, said that by sharing more information, Microsoft would make it easier for others to write Internet programs that tap into personal information on a PC.


Haven't they been doing this all along, that's called low security.

Microsoft is also trying to win approval from an international standards body for its new document format, Office Open XML. Microsoft contends its format is “open,” meaning files in the format can be created and read by anyone.


If this is the new vista office default format, it isn't even readable by MS office 2000.

BTY, that page never quit loading the whole time I was reading it. It's full of some kind of trash.
