ODF as Malaysian Standard

Malaysia has taken a big step by proposing ODF (OpenDocument Format) to become their national office standard. Using an independent format gives us flexibility to use any application as long it supports the ODF format (and it should be, as it has been accepted as ISO/IEC 26300). So far, many applications have been developed to support this format, for example OpenOffice.org, KOffice, and Microsoft Office 2007 Beta 2 (with some help of ODF-Converter). Looking forward to hear from Indonesian government (not sure if it will be heard or seen by them) :D
