WindowsITPro reports Office 2010 will get a ballot screen as well to please the European Commission, this screen will ask users which file format standards they want to use.
I know. It sounds like April Fools. And it's hard to imagine what a typical consumer would think of a screen that described the differences between DOC, DOCX, and ODF formats, as if such a thing was even meaningful for most. But that is exactly what Microsoft has proposed to EU regulators. And if I'm reading the vibe from Brussels correctly, you can expect them to accept it. Ballot screens all around, people.
