That'll take a while longer. With existing implementations in place, even Apple
(maybe Novell too) will fight for it.

At the end of the day, ODF is certainly not going away. Even BECTAsoft
apparently wishes to adopt ODF and it told BSI to say "No" to OOXML, which it
did.

Yes, BECTAsoft! The day has only just begun and pig are flying out my window.
