Subject: MLUG - For interest: SA to adopt ODF as government standard
ODF is the "Open Document Format", a file standard for spreadsheets,
word processor documents, and other office productivity applications.
It's similar to Microsoft's .xls, .doc, etc formats, only open for
anyone to implement :-)
ODF is the primary document format of the open source OpenOffice suite.
