Freedom means freedom over time as well. Any open source offering that uses a file format that can't be viewed and edited from a 10 year old device in one way or another, or that will be unreadable 10 years from now, is badly designed in my opinion.
@neil you can always convert them (0-0)
@miwilc Absolutely - as long as it's readable and convertable, then that's fine.
@neil yeah, I have seen a lot of applications recently, most of them use plan text or the open document format.
@neil also that was totally not a typo, that was definitely a correct word!
Not that I meant to say plain text at all... :^)
@bob Yes, I guess you could argue it could fall under the umbrella of Freedoms 1 and 3.
