Home / General / Don’t want OOXML, says India, Brazil

Let me set the context here: On 2nd April 2008, ISO approves Microsoft Open Office XML (OOXML) as an ISO/IEC International Standard. India didn’t vote for it, says The ET. Dr. Deepak Phatak writes a lengthy, but stirring note on the OOXML happenings in India. Cut to present, India and Brazil file an appeal against the adoption of MS OOXML as an International Standard. The news is here.

And as all this happened, MS quietly announced its support for the ODF.
