Danish Politicians Given OpenOffice CDs to Try Out ODF

,----[ Quote ]
| Per Groklaw: "[PJ: The link is in Danish, but a volunteer,
| Karl Jorgensen, has provided a translation for us.] The
| Danish Unix System User Group (DKUUG) has decided to give all
| the memebrs of parliament a CD with the free open-source
| office package OpenOffice.org 2.0.3 in
| Danish....The action will give the politicians a chance to
| see what the discussion about open standards is really about.
| OpenOffice.org uses the so-called Open Document Format (ODF)
| which has already been approved as an ISO standard, whilst
| the promised Microsoft Office 2007 uses another standard,
| Office Open XML."
