Microsoft Open Format Standard Said to Get Global Approval - New York Times

Contention over the outcome even influenced the remarks of representatives of countries that abstained from the vote, like the Netherlands. “This is like someone with six shopping carts of food trying to go through the express lane at a supermarket,” said Michiel Leenaars, a member of the Dutch voting delegation. “The end result of this will be confusion. The standard is simply too big. There are still a lot of questions out there.”

A joke of another kind.
