    Holy crap, no way, did they just do something useful to do with technology for once? That's a good shift.

    How does this tally with the proposal to adopt Office 365 after the next election ?
    I'm guessing 365 supports ODF, or have they abandoned the idea of using 365.

    Why does this matter in any sense?

    I do almost everything in Word 97 files.

    Both office 2013 and 365 support ODF.
    When you first open 2013 it asks you which format you want to default to.
    There's setting in 365 where you can pick which you want to default to OOXML/ODF.

    Let's hope the PICT department sets that as the default then.
    These MP's aren't to bright when it comes to computers. :D

    This is good news. I'm actually surprised they hadn't already.
