Spread the word, share this ODF artwork

ODF logo by Red Hat

Red Hat graphic designers have designed a logo and poster to help liberate your documents.

ODF is an open standard for electronic office documents. It’s important for a lot of reasons :

  • ODF is an open standard and you are free to implement it (for example in your office suite and tools).
  • No vendor lock-in. All major office suites use ODF (except MS Office).
  • In ten years time you can still open your documents

  2. “In ten years time you can still open your documents”

    What Office95 document can’t Office2007 open? Also, afaik Office95 installs and runs on Vista. It may not work perfectly (hey, it’s Office95) you can get your stuff out.

    Also OOo has ironically invalidated that argument for ODF.😉

  3. To erik :

    Can you still easily open your wordperfect documents ?

    With ODF you can guarantee that you can still open your documents in 10 years time because everyone can implement ODF. It doesn’t matter if a new version of ODF gets released since the older ODF version is still open. OpenOffice will still be able to open ODF’s of earlier versions of ODF.

  4. At least easily enough to convert them into something else. Someone has been able to implement support for it, just alike you referred to the possibilities with ODF.
