Groklaw: “Romney’s Office: We Are Firm and Expect No Changes”

Groklaw reports on Peter Quinn’s resignation, and the state of Massachusetts’ declaration that it will continue with its plan to implement ODF. Quinn apparently had enough of the political circus surrounding his very sound technical decision.

Groklaw’s piece concludes, “If the friends of Microsoft in the Commonwealth thought they were helping Microsoft by attacking Peter Quinn, I’d say they miscalculated. The Peter Quinn story makes Microsoft look bad, and the Commonwealth even worse. Haven’t you heard, fellows? This is the Internet age. Every dirty trick gets to be known and reported, with the light firmly shining on it, not by mainstream media folks perhaps, some of whom will print any old dirt you send them without even verifying if it’s true or not, but by bloggers, by citizen journalists. And there are millions of us.”
