ODF challenge continues in Massachusetts

by Andy Oram

The Massachusetts state administration is proceeding with its plan o adopt the Open Document Format and tools that support it. (A plug-in is being developed to allow use of the format with Microsoft Word.) Standards expert Andrew Updegrove has a story on the most recent complaint about ODF adoption, which focuses more on the committee process than on ODF itself.

There seems to be no reconfiguration of forces or new angles on ODF or the process here, but people interested in the Massachusetts process should follow this story.
