I don't plan to change my job next year.

There are no expected changes in my weekly time table for 2008.
Considering that, I think I'll have enough time to work on the Board.

Actually, I would say that we need to be really careful when defending
the opposite idea (one true universal standard for everyone) because
this can turn against us when trying push new/existing Free/Open
standards (as Jeff already mentioned).

So, yes, I can accept competing standards but it really depends on the case.

I think I have already given my opinion about OOXML.
