Dunno how I missed this earlier, but a big win for open formats:

Weird. It's not like the Tories to get anything right, least of all something pertaining to technology.
I'm waiting for the "Ahhh, so that's why they did it" revelation.

I am going to talk about this with my local representatives this Friday. I suggest any other UK residents do the same. ask them to slowly shift towards libreoffice and openoffice. there are loads of UK copanies that support this now.

The reason is about competition and helping local small medium enterprises rather than big corporations. Or so I think.
