In the News The commonwealth of Massachusetts has finalised its decision to standardise desktop applications on OpenDocument, a format not supported by Microsoft Office. State agencies in the executive branch are now supposed to migrate to OpenDocument-compliant applications by 1 January, 2007, a change that will affect about 50 000 desktop PCs. The reference model also confirms that Adobe's PDF format is considered an "open format".

Very good comment. Precise and clear. (I followed this story since a month). wikipedia - OpenDocument is also a good starting point to learn about this.

I must say I'm quite disappointed by OSNews lately ...
I tend to agree with you. The problem is not in OSNews, too many people give or have an opinion without undestanding about what they are talking. The same can be said with other forums.

Regards.
