Team led by IBM, Sun formalizes OpenDocument support
Andy Updegrove writes "The news on the plans made at the Armonk ODF meeting is moving out of the meeting room and into the press, with a first interview given by Bob Sutor, IBM meeting host. The message he delivered in an IDG News Service interview yesterday was 1. We will make the accessibility issue go away, 2. We will push this globally, and 3. There may be a formal organization in the future to make this all happen. Who makes what announcements over the next several weeks will provide a good indication of how successful the ODF initiative will be."
