Open Document Format Versus Microsoft Office 12?
I enjoyed reading the wave of recent articles regarding the enthusiasm for Open Document Format (ODF), notably
- internetnews.com: Tech Rallies Around Open Document Format
- crn.com: OpenDocument Format Supporters Band Together in Alliance
- theregister.co.uk: Office Formats Alliance Opens for Business
along with an opinion on linux-watch.com that the UI of the upcoming Microsoft Office 12, a tough one to master according to the author, may very well result in a boom for ODF.So, will governments and industry go for ODF in the long run and leave Microsoft Office behind? Big decisions ahead for the CIOs.
