My friend tells me that it’s just a few days until Wrestlemania — pro wrestling’s flagship annual event. This Sunday (sunday…sunday), thousands of fans will show up to see
luchadors pro-wrestlers perform in a small ring, throwing each other about and providing a spectacle of a performance for those in the bleachers and for the million or two at home. Given the imminent match-up, I find it quite fitting that The Document Foundation (TDF) has just announced the creation of the Document Liberation Project, a “home for the growing community of developers united to free users from vendor lock-in of content.”
On the face of things, one might not see a close comparison between computers and big, brawny men, but if you delve into the world of file formats and software, you’ll see how a fight is being waged every day — on desktops and laptops around the world.
