Hash: SHA1

Danish hospital: "Hassle free use of ODF across competing office suites"

,----[ Quote ]
| The Danish Ãrhus University Hospital in Risskov, a long-time user of 
| OpenOffice, says there are no problems at all exchanging ODF-based documents 
| with other hospitals using Microsoft's proprietary Office 2003.  
| The trick is to have Microsoft users install the free Sun Microsystems ODF 
| plugin. "Once that is installed, there are no more problems in exchanging 
| ODF-based text documents", says Jens Christian Damgaard one of the hospital's 
| IT administrators.   



"Ha ha nice WIndows 7 ships with ODF support inside of WordPad! I wonder how
borked it will be on writing out"

Sanders expert report is ready

,----[ Quote ]
| Helge Sander, Danish Minister of Science and Technology
| earlier this year asked an expert committee to look into
| the technical and legal implications of the introduction of
| two standards for documents in the government. The report
| is now ready.
| [...]
| In addition, the ISO approval of OOXML is concidered as the
| final conclusion that the OOXML is an open and appropriate
| standard. This despite the fact that even Dansih Standards
| recognizes that the approval process was perhaps not
| completely clean and OOXML might not be quite as qualified
| as it seems.
| The experts completely ignores the world around us. I
| believe that we in Denmark can't take such decisions
| without first looking around us. The countries which we
| usually compare ourselves with, may have been through
| similar problems. But the report is also completely
| ignoring this.
