belgium adopts open office doc format

Yay for Belgium I’d say!

From El Reg:

Belgium has become the first country to mandate the use of the OpenDocument format (ODF) for office files, albeit tentatively.

From September next year software in all Belgian government departments must be able to read ODF files. If the experiment is successful, ODF will become the standard interchange format – although departments will still be able to exchange office files in proprietary formats internally.
