LXer: From the Desk of - Who-da-thunk-it?
Published at LXer:

The Australian government, which had previously decided to mandate the Microsoft-driven Office Open XML format within its departments, has now proposed requiring instead that any office suite used by the government should, at a minimum, support Open Document Format 1.1.Really? I gotta wonder what (internal) forces mandated this. I have many people I consider friends Down Under and to a (wo)man they all agree that Australia is a Microsoft-owned continent. At least in Government and the Enterprise.We'll watch and see what happens.
