Well done, Denmark. The world salutes you. Another country that is sure to
follow  is  Norway,  unless it has openly expressed this  will  /already/.
Their  President  (or was it PM?) called for the ditching  Office  formats
over  a  year  ago. Good man! One who actually understands  computers  and
makes his own judgement...

The  folks  from  Trolltech and Opera (among others) must  be  making  the
ethical  issues  more  obvious  to the Norwegian  people...  another  such
country is Finland. 41%+ Firefox...
