Today the world is celebrating the second annual Document Freedom Day. As a community we have a lot to celebrate and recognize.
- It is becoming politically acceptable for organizations everywhere to standardize on OpenDocument Format (ODF) for their documents.
- Microsoft is expected to release information any day now regarding their support of ODF in their latest office suite (and with the ODF plug-in already freely available for their older versions).
