Last week to Brussels to meet the European Commission, then back to Vancouver to pick up the tent and head to Foo to meet with, well, everybody, then to the Valley to put on my corporate hat for multiple sessions around Open-Source and blogging and syndication.

Anyhow, I think it’s sensible to be concerned about the potential threat. Of course, that concern would vanish if Microsoft were to state that they won’t use intellectual-property litigation as a competitive weapon against other office-software packages. Simple enough.
