The world is talking about GNU/Linux and Free/Open Source Software
My Comments as Posted to the UK Cabinet Office Standards Hub (now it's your turn)
The comments on the UK Cabinet Office Standards policy are coming in thick, fast, and overwhelmingly in support of ODF over OOXML.
Last week I highlighted the fact that Microsoft was urging its business partners to comment at the British Cabinet Office's Standards Hub on a standards-related proposal. That proposal would limit government procurement to office software that complied with the ISO ODF standard, but makes no mention of the ISO OOXML standard promoted by Microsoft. I also noted that anyone could comment on the proposal, and that the deadline for comments would close on February 26, Greenwich time. I closed by urging readers to let their opinions on the subject be heard.
Having so urged, I could hardly forego offering my own comments as well, and now I have done exactly that. What follows is the text I uploaded there, and perhaps it will help motivate you to contribute as well if you have not already done so.
