"ODF is recommended by numerous governments and NGO's worldwide, with
Indonesia, the European Commission, and NATO amongst those who support
policies calling for ODF as the preferred document production, retention
and exchange format."

For EC, please have a look here:

I like this "quote".
NATO - well the US and Canada are part of NATO - correct?

Yes, for full list see here:

That means that the USA, when dealing with other NATO members should use
ODF for their documentation and other files.

In theory yes...

Any more national and international organization can added to that list?

That may force MSO to do ODF better or just start thinking about using an
office package that does it better than MSO does.

I am a little vague on what is involved with the "European Commission",
like how many of the EU are part of it, etc..  But, it does imply that
countries in Europe support the ODF format[s].

IMHO that changes from period to period...  IMHO always 27

Since LO uses ODF as their default format, we support the policies of these
worldwide organizations.  Since any Tech Adminknows that MS/MSO have been
sued by the EU many many times and MS/MSO have not complied with many of
those rulings that went against MS/MSO. If a company want to do business
with the EU, maybe you should keep that in mind when talking about an
office package that supports the policies set down by the EU or the
European Commission.

MS/MSO still hasnot complied with US courtrulings from the late '90's and
would rather pay the fines, which is "pocket change"to MS. The US courts
are starting to support fining and jail time for the top administrators of
companies that do not comply to the US Court rulings.  Maybe that will help
get the US and EU court rulings to be complied with.

One thing I am wondering is this (quotation from


   "The ‘Metropolitan Point of Presence’ (MPoP) means the point of
   inter-connection between the access and core networks of an NGA operator.
   It is equivalent to the Main Distribution Frame (MDF) in the case of the
   copper access network. All NGA subscribers’ connections in a given area
   (usually a town or part of a town) are centralised to the MPoP on an
   Optical Distribution Frame (ODF). From the ODF, NGA loops are connected to
   the core network equipment of the NGA operator or of other operators,
   possibly via intermediate backhaul links where equipment is not co-located
   in the MPoP."

 IMHO that could be meant as well (or do is the quote in connection with
the switch of NASA from Windows to Linux..?).
