Benjamin,

Darn.  I told myself that I would keep my yap shut, SASAG-wise, for a

Me, I like to think that I don't spend my time being "anti" much of
anything and I, perhaps unlike Mohsen, might just ignore things like
DOC attachments. But I figure it is worth pointing out the irony that
this SASAG discussion is taking place at a time when then monopoly in
question is busy as a beaver buying votes in pursuit of the *next*
(hoped-for) single-vendor DOC "standard":

Oops.

But if you *like* having a single company control your IT destiny, I'm
not sure that anything I could say would matter.
