OPEN SOURCE / OPEN STANDARDS / ODF What does it mean and why should you care?

According to Marino Marcich, Managing Director of the Open Document Format (ODF) Alliance, a group of more than 420 organizations, governments and companies working for the  adoption of the ISO Standard OpenDocument Format worldwide, the transition has grown significantly in the past year.

In terms of professional savvy, this means that more and more offices around the world are embracing the idea that Information Communication Technology (ICT) -- specifically business productivity applications such as text editors and spreadsheets -- should conform to some sort of 'international standard' which, as cited by Rich Green, Executive Vice President, Software, Sun Microsystems, "ensures documents will still be readable long into the future."

So important is this transition to 'open standards' that the Obama administration recently issued a directive that "Each agency shall publish its annual Freedom of Information Act Report in an open format on its Open Government Webpage..." (emphasis added).

OpenOffice.org (OOo) is among a handful of ODF application developers who offer stable 'open source' programs which conform to these new standards. 

The OOo Community is a global network of volunteer and sponsored contributors who seek to make state-of-the-art desktop productivity software available to install and use for any purpose in virtually every computer anywhere at absolutely no cost.

Their OpenOffice.org open-source productivity suite bundles word processor, spreadsheet, presentations, and database software applications comparable (and some would say superior) to Microsoft's Office product.

With no up-front license to purchase, no annual renewal fee to pay, no having to buy an 'upgrade' every time a new version comes out, OOo (virus resistant) software is easily installed (even by the technophobe), conveniently downloadable and seamlessly ready to run; able to read and write to Microsoft Word and Excel files even if those applications are not installed, and backed by a world-wide network of top-notch technical support... all at no cost.
