Can someone please explain to me why this is a good idea? When, by some miracle, a standard in an unstandardized field has been successfully adopted and universally accepted, whereby compression standards are not cross-incompatible and a constant headache, why blast that agreeable situation asunder? Moreover, what evil purpose does the change serve? How does it further Gates & Co.'s corporate hegemony or global greed? I can't see what advantage they think it's going to get them.
So that I'm not misunderstood, I'm not making statements here. I really don't know whether this is a potentially good or bad situation and I really don't understand the motives behind it, and I would appreciate being schooled. Anybody know?
