What a day for standard formats and free software...

Today 3 news has came along related with standars and free software that I hope it gives light to people in general and local politics here on the Canary Islands, Sapin, about what's going on:

1.- German Foreign minister, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, supports ODF.

2.- Open Document format (ODF) yesterday became an official standard for
South African government communications.

3.- Becta, the government's education technology agency, has today made a complaint to the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) for alleged anti-competitive practices by Microsoft in the schools software marketplace and in relation to Microsoft's approach to document interoperability.

...I want more days like today. By the way, thanks KDE for letting me become part of such an amazing project.
