The proposal is only about using ODF, HTML, CSV and TXT as file formats.
It doesn't mention which software would be used, so I don't see how your
comment is relevant.
My understanding is that each ministry could use whatever application they wish as long as they can set the default file formats to the standards. MS's FUD is self-serving because using standard formats avoids vendor lock-in but does not mean they are not an approved vendor.

Hi everyone,

I already posted this on the LibreOffice Google+ and Facebook pages,
there are probably quite a few people subscibed to this list who are
following either one.

Despite the self-generated hype, not every Tom, Dick and Harriet are
interested in these social data-collation (sorry "media") tools.

The UK government plans to move to open standards like ODF and HTML and
apparently Microsoft didn't know that people can voice their
opinions on
the proposal since January and started to spread some FUD  once again a
few days ago.

If you think that truly open standards are a better solution than
then it'd be beneficial if you registered on the
page and commented. In 3 days, comments will be closed.

Thanks for informing us, but in addition users have to be educated
about the benefits of _not_ using LO and an m$ clone and actually
promote the odf standard themselves. Continual "bug reports" about m$
suggest otherwise.
