How many times can a misleading and uninteresting story be repeated? Apparently, as long as Peter Galli is able to attract traffic and make Microsoft happy. This pointless CDF confusion continues at eWeek, despite the fact that Andy Updegrave has already stated (straight from the guru’s mouth) that CDF is not suitable for rich-text documents. It no longer matters also because its backers closed the shop (garage).
But back to the eweek article from which the quote above is taken: Former ODF Leaders Turn Hopes to Compound Document Format. Isn’t December 3, 2007 a bit late for that news, Mr. Galli?
Again and again and again. This is like the fifth article covering pretty much the same irrelevant story, and quite poorly at times. We also complained the last time he did this (last week) because it’s clearly a pattern. See the open letter to eWeek. So, here’s just a polite plea: cover more interesting and recent stories. Cover them accurately as well and create no unnecessary drama if you post to a news Web site, rather than your blog (Peter does have one). █
