Denmark Chooses ODF Document Format

Seahawk was one of several readers to write in with news of Denmark’s decision to embrace ODF. “On Friday morning Denmark decided to choose ODF over Microsoft’s OOXML. For now the decision is only effective for govermental institutions, but regions and municipalities will most likely follow some time in the future. The decision has unfolded over a period of four years, and many open source advocates were fearing the worst, but it looks like the minister finally caved in and listened to what a lot of people were saying.” While in transition away from Microsoft Office formats, the Danes may find use for this new OpenOffice integration guide (sent in by reader AdeleWard).
