Bill Gates: Ensuring Trident does not "commoditize our Office editing asset"

{{quote|We will have to figure our ways to make sure that the Trident [an Internet Explorer layout engine] we ship in Windows doesn’t commoditize our Office editing asset but this can be done as some kind of hack after we get the engineering done. Parts of Trident like things relating to Ebook do not go to standards bodies.


One thing to be clear on – just because in point 2 we want to get the benefits of XMF/Ebook in Trident it does NOT mean we want to take those things to a standard commitee to give them away.|Bill Gates}}
