“”The choice of free in the administration is not an ideological commitment is the result of a reasoned choice, which ensures the sustainability of the documents created, and thus ensures the state to ensure future of its heritage. The documents of the State can not be dependent on a particular actor, “said Jean-Vincent Place, the Secretary of State responsible for State reform and simplification.”
See The formalized v2 GIR, ODF to OpenXML favoriteIt’s been a long time coming but France is now on its way to giving preference to ODF over M$’s mess of a standard for documents. Why any government would choose to insist that M$’s lock-in be chosen over freedom has been a mystery to me but finally everyone is understanding what freedom means.

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
