Comic Transcript

JUDGE: You don’t “feel like” supporting the OpenDocument standard?

VIKTOR SCHRECK: It’s closer to the truth to say that we feel very strongly about NOT supporting it.

JUDGE: Why?

VIKTOR SCHRECK: OpenDocument is not a mature standard. Our native format is. There are features our own format handles without trouble that OpenDocument doesn’t handle at all.

JUDGE: What kind of features?

VIKTOR SCHRECK: Well… features like… VoIP, for example. OpenDocument doesn’t support VoIP.

DEFENSE ATTORNEY: Objection!

DEFENSE ATTORNEY: Your Honor, “VoIP” is a technology that allows your Internet connection to double as your telephone. Is he saying that a proper document format must allow you to use your document as your telephone service?

(Silence.)

VIKTOR SCHRECK: Yes I am.
