DFD '08 : Request considered for ODF as institution standard


As a part of Document Freedom Day 2008, Fossers of Vidya, the Free Software Users Group, Vidya Academy submitted a request to Principal of the institution requesting ODF as the institute standard. The request suggested for making ODF the default standard for all academic requirements such as project submission and seminar presentation making and for all institutional document archiving. The FoV suggested a team of students to work for the initial installation of OpenOffice and for providing a solutions for issues. As there was an university examination today the other programs where postponed. Principal accepted the request and suggested a meeting for that on a convenient date after examinations and coming vacations.

Good move! Now that OOXML has been accepted as a "standard", efforts like this have to be intensified.

Great work! Could you put up some details about how you were able to convince the principal?!

Amazing news!

It is important to note that OOXML is currently a "preliminary" standard. It will take a few more months, unless there are objections.

In any case, it is important to have good training on OpenOffice.org. To use features such as document styles and master documents. There are very good when you write a dissertation/thesis. See
