Noruega detecta irregularidades en la votación de OOXML

Como probablemente sepa todo el mundo, se están celebrando las nuevas votaciones de OOXML. Microsoft se va a salir con la suya (casi no hay duda), pero no dejan de oirse, como se oyeron la primera vez, protestas, la mas seria la de Holanda, que dicen que le han contado el NO por SI:

I am writing to you in my capacity as Chairman (of 13 years standing) of the Norwegian mirror committee to ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 34. I wish to inform you of serious irregularities in connection with the Norwegian vote on ISO/IEC DIS 29500 (Office Open XML) and to lodge a formal protest.

You will have been notified that Norway voted to approve OOXML in this ballot. This decision does not reflect the view of the vast majority of the Norwegian committee, 80% of which was against changing Norway's vote from No with comments to Yes.

Because of this irregularity, a call has been made for an investigation by the Norwegian Ministry of Trade and Industry with a view to changing the vote.

I hereby request that the Norwegian decision be suspended pending the results of this investigation.


En otras palabras, su voto probablemente cuente como abstención.
