New Plug-in will enable Microsoft Office users to read and write ODF documents

Just two days after hearing the news about the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) ratifying the Open Document Format (ODF) as a file format standard, we have the news about a new plug-in for Microsoft Office. This plug-in promises to enable Microsoft Office users to open, display, and save ODF files.

In an interview for Graklaw, Gary Edwards, from the OpenDocument Foundation, said they have developed the plug-in and have finished testing it. This news come just a day after the Commonwealth of Massachusetts issued a request for information on any plug-in that would allow MS Office users to interact with ODF documents.

There is no excuse now. Everybody can switch to use the Open Document Format!
