Re: The Four-Thirds standard

Long live EBCDIC!

So, with Unicode here now, ASCII is dead perhaps? Do we apply the same to EF? I think 4/3's has it's work cut out, just like Unicode.

It's a pretty big stretch to call 4/3 a "standard".

I believe that the Four-Thirds standard meets most of the accepted
definitions of a standard - certainly as much as the VHS tape
standard did when it was first established. It has been generated
by consensus of a group of organizations, is well documented, and
revolves around concepts of compatibility and interchangeability.

A standard does not need to wait for widespread implementation to
be considered a standard.
