Malaysia Chooses ODF

Great news comes from Malaysia this week: the government appears to be adopting ODF as its standard document format.

ZDNet Asia announces, “Malaysia formally embraces Open Document Format.”

“The decision taken has been deliberated carefully for a considerable amount of time, and much thought process has been put into it,” Nor Aliah Mohd. Zahri, ICT deputy director general at MAMPU, said in a statement.

“These discussions centered on open formats, particularly as they relate to office documents, their importance for the current and future accessibility of government records, and the relative ‘openness’ of the format options available to us,” Nor Aliah explained.”
