Strategy in post-standards war era

Two more examples to show that tech strategy has moved on beyond proprietery standards lock-in:

1.IBM open-sources speech recognition software to pre-empt anyone from attempting a standards lock-in.

2.European Commission asks Sun to make OpenOffice XML specs into an ISO standard.

Hmmm...womdering if this realization has prompted Microsoft to ship a stripped version of Windows in Europe if it loses the anti-trust appeal. On second thoughts, I think it's merely tactical.
