I’ve recently become a member of the OpenDocument Fellowship, which is a volunteer organisation that exists to support and promote the use of the OASIS document format for office applications. It’s a document format with an open specification, and is used by default in OpenOffice.org v2.
The current campaign is to get Microsoft to introduce support for OpenDocument in their Office suite. Microsoft have said publicly that they will do so if there is a demand – and now it’s time to show them that demand! There is a petition hosted on the OpenDocument fellowship website where you can sign up as an individual or on behalf of the company you work for, giving the number of machines for which you are responsible. There are over 85,000 machines represented on the petition so far, but it needs more!Pin It
