Well, if everyone in the world (basically the 85 odd percent off windows
users) upgrade tomorrow to a new MS email client that formats mails in
some strange MS-HTML-standard - the first thing that will happen is
GMail will start supporting it - meaning most people will have it -
which means the Linux community WILL have to support it - thats how the
world is today - that does not mean we should not fight it - but Linux
must play along to stay relevant.
I also want all online music to be in OGG format, but who on this list
does not have a MP3 and WMA decoder installed?
