Summary: Updates on ODF progress around the world, among developers, and in committees
THE NEWS about Slovakia choosing ODF (OpenDocument Format) was last mentioned in September and now we have Jan Husar stating that “OOXML didn’t made it into national standards and ODF can be used in any version!”
This message was passed on by Rob Weir and many other people who support ODF. Another person says that “In conference with the Dominican Republic document archieve from the ministry of culture about implementing ODF…”
Over in Denmark, the anger and confusion are not over. We wrote about this last month and reports continue to pour, albeit they’re mostly/only in Danish:
- Europa hælder mod parløb mellem OOXML og ODF
- ODF eller OOXML, oppositionen vil gennemtvinge valg
- Flertal uden om regeringen vil gennemtrumfe ODF + OOXML-strict
- Se Helge Sanders svar i ODF/OOXML-sagen
- SF giver Sander kniven for struben i ODF/OOXML-sag

I use some open office files in my thumbdrive, so that i can easily transition between my home pc (windows) and linux netbook (Asus Eee PC). I hope Quickoffice can support these files, so that I can also use them on my S60 phone (Nokia E71)
