Further evidence of the ever-growing support for OpenDocument format just keeps coming and coming. It’s hardly necessary at this stage, but just in case the list of embracers needs updating, consider Wikipedia. From the WikiMedia Foundation:
The third stage, planned for mid-2008, will be the addition of the OpenDocument format for word processors to the list of export formats. “Imagine that you want to use a set of wiki articles in the classroom. By supporting the OpenDocument format, we will make it easy for educators to customize and remix content before printing and distributing it from any desktop computer,” Sue Gardner explained. This work is funded through a US$40,000 grant by the Open Society Institute.
Those who support OOXML are often paid by Microsoft to do this. That includes Novell. It makes this not support, but pseudo-support, of which we see plenty. It’s a question of money, not quality. Let’s repeat a motto:
OpenDocument opens up your documents.
Microsoft’s Open XML opens up your wallet. █
