LXer: Call for Asia to adopt ODF

Published at LXer:

U.N. official urges governments to"seriously consider" the OpenDocument Format; applauds Microsoft's move to create ODF plug-in. [Sunil] Abraham explained: "Most governments in this region are older than the software vendors that they are talking to, and they will almost certainly outlive the software vendors and developers. For government [document] archives, it is thus critical that [they] use open formats." [I couldn't find a mention of any software implementing ODF except, in spite of efforts by KDE, Abiword, IBM and others. The article seems to be pulling some of the same stunts as Steven Titch. It includes commentary by the BSA in opposition to ODF and support of MS. -- grouch]
