When Will Indonesia Use ODF?

Last year, Malaysia has started to adopt ODF (Open Document Format) as their national standard on office application. This year, Indonesian Open Source Association is trying to push the Communication and Informatics Department to propose ODF as the Indonesian National Standards. This was reported by Engkos Koswara on "Second Asean Workshop on Open Source Software" event.

Let's hope the plan is working well and next year, Indonesia will start using ODF as the standards on every office. By making it standards, it will accelerate the use of ODF on office and educational environments.

It's open, reliable, standards, compatible, and many more. What else could you possible want with it?
