ODF for Swiss Government

Erwin Tenhumberg can read German, but I cannot. He found an article that includes a report suggesting the Swiss government adopt ODF as its default format for office application data.

Erwin writes, “Considering that Belgium, the state of Extremadura in Spain, and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in the US have already selected ODF as a standard for government use, and looking at all the similar efforts in France, Malaysia, India, Brazil and elsewhere, I’m pretty sure that Microsoft will fight against the eCH proposal fiercely as well.

Nevertheless, it’s good to see yet another country is seriously considering the adoption of ODF. I’m sure more countries will follow these examples.”
