I hope for a better future, and one of the hopes was for a xml authoring tool which would hide the xml from users but constrain them to a xml schema.
Even a year ago I looked at different solutions and they were honestly crap to say the least. Then I heard about Office 2003 by Microsoft of all corps, and thought maybe there doing something right for once?
Yeah right… I think this pretty much sums up the current situation.
Its does talk about Open office a bit and how that fits into the picture with Microsoft, Corel and Adobe. With the other links off that page its a quite good read and sums things up.
