Response to: Supporting projects like this is bad for opensource

I'm sorry, but this is a ridiculous stance. The POI folks are creating a valuable tool for anyone who needs to read and write these file formats. Even the open-source world has plenty of reasons for interoperability with Microsoft file formats.


What is bad for open-source are folks who believe that there's only one valuable way to contribute.
