McNealy Calls for Merger of ODF and China's UOF
Andy Updegrove writes "Beijing, April 17, 2007 - Sun Microsystem's Chairman Scott McNealy delivered the keynote at a standards conference sponsored by Chinese government ministries, councils and commissions (and Sun) today. In his address, McNealy characterized the Chinese-developed Uniform Document Format (UOF) as "one of the three main document formats in existence today," the other two being Microsoft Office and the OASIS/ISO standard known as Open Document Format (ODF). He also called for the merger of UOF and ODF into a single standard."
