Formats Performance Differential


I was recently pointed to an blog posting by George Ou over at ZDNet. Performance matters.

    Ah, finally we get some meat on the bone.  If Open XML results in more efficient applications than ODF that is a good reason to use it.

    However, comparing MS Office to OpenOffice in performance and from that saying that the formats dictate performance is a stretch.  I can easily imagine the Sun engineers blaming the format rather than their own code.

    Admittedly, from a user perspective it doesn’t matter what the cause is: the application is slow.

    Thanks for the comment Swashbucker. I’ll comment further on this at the top level of the blog given that I think it is an important point.
