Apple loves Microsoft Office

I’m not a MacBook user but I’m very much concerned about the fact that Apple’s office applications (i.e., iWorks, Pages, Number, and Keynote) do not support the ISO 26300, or the Open Document Format (ODF). What it does support is the OOXML used by Microsoft Office 2007, which is being severely criticized as anti-standard, if not proprietary.

My friend has created an online petition to pressure Apple to comply with the ODF standard. There may be a reason for it to love Microsoft Office. But it must give at least an ounce of love for the ODF, don’t you think?  Please visit the petition site and sign up.
