an announcement by Morten Andreas Meyer, the Norwegian Minister
""Proprietary formats will no longer be acceptable in communication between citizens and government."
Taking great care not to mention the name Microsoft directly, but rather referring to "the spreadsheet almost everyone use" or saying this is the last time I will present a plan for information technology being broadcast on the net in Windows Media, the Minister sent strong signals in the direction of Redmond to open up or become irrelevant to the Norwegian Government.
