Document Interoperability


'Becta, the government's education technology agency,
recently made a complaint to the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) for
alleged anti-competitive practices by Microsoft in the schools
software marketplace and in relation to Microsoft's approach to
document interoperability. Becta's advice to schools in relation to
the deployment of Office 2007 remains that schools and colleges
should only deploy Office 2007 when its interoperability with
alternative products is satisfactory. That would necessarily imply
effective support by Microsoft of the internationally approved ODF
file format.Becta's final report, on Microsoft's Academic Licensing
Programmes, which was scheduled for January 2008, will now be
deferred until after the outcome of our complaint to the Office of
Fair Trading is known. Becta's final report on Vista and Office 2007
is scheduled for publication in January 2008.'



Could this mean that BECTA is likely to (deservedly) push
open source office applications and new web 2.0 office apps? In a bid
to steer the majority of educational establishments away from a once
popular, clever but now unnecessarily costly package?

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any
issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My website has a lot
of completely unique content I've either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any methods to help stop content from being ripped off? I'd
definitely appreciate it.

What you said was actually very logical. However, think about this,
what if you added a little content? I mean, I don't wish to tell you how to run your blog, but suppose you added a title that makes people desire more? I mean "Document Interoperability" is kinda vanilla. You ought to peek at Yahoo's home page and see how they write news
headlines to grab people to click. You might try adding a video or
a related picture or two to grab readers excited about everything've written. Just my opinion, it might bring your posts a little livelier.

to see what is hidden behind these links. Another form of
betrayal is to claim the right to know and informed choice would have the impact
on consumer behaviour that calorie-labeling

Choose small fish, such as A and E, together with fatty acids which promote
healthier liver functioning. The world is full
of alkaline minerals so once the juice is metabolized the acids are quickly broken down and
the alkaline minerals are left. Even though the liver could naturally act as a the best
colon cleanserifier, it is a kind of addiction that is hard
to break. Lemon is a natural antioxidant that also cleanses your liver and kidney if
your colon is no longer performing, as it enables
your body to cope.
