Massachusetts wants open document standards

Massachusetts [trashes] Microsoft Office - vnunet.com:

The State of Massachusetts has unveiled a plan to replace Microsoft Office with a software suite that supports the open standards set by the Oasis standards body.

Massachusetts' chief information officer Peter Quinn said in a document posted on the State's website (PDF download available here) that the State seeks in particular to embrace Open Document Format for Office Applications, or OpenDocument.

OpenOffice.org works great. Pair it with CutePDF Writer and you can produce documentation in any format you like.
