Hi.  there is another legal  EU issue  (inside the European Union),  which is important.   Please 
understand that I can mention but not explain it,  because I am not an expert in this field.  

Eu has made since years open data  (definition:
   mandatory for public administrations.  I think the last version is directive UE 2019/1024.   so, 
imnteroperability and availability are not only comfortable, but mandatory.

this should be also for scientific and research data.

so, I guess,  proprietary data format are not suited for this purpose.

MS Office documents carry 80% of all malware because they are

strictly related to the way OOXML - MS Office pseudo-standard format -
has been intentionally developed. So, this means that switching from
OOXML to ODF - LibreOffice standard document format - would reduce
security issues by a significant percentage.

This one is an interesting point. I would like to read more about it.

Italo, can you please send some article(s) on it? or we can write one too.
