I can't believe i hadn't said that earlier!!  It was a great "press
release" :))

totally agree

A few comments
pointed out that Google-docs doesn't use ODF.  However Google
themselves posted there own statement saying that they support this
proposal to use ODF.

actually that is partial truth and not the whole truth. users were right, google does not support 
ODF totally. gmail has a very nice feature - when an email has an attachment, you could simply 
click on it and a preview will be open. you could go through the preview and decide if you want to 
download it or not. this preview feature is supported for ".docx",".xlsx", .doc. .pdf but not for 
".odt,.ods". so from this you could come to a conclusion that google does not support ODFs.
however, if you save the file into google drive and then try to convert it, it is possible to do so 
even with ODFs. so, google drive does support ODF. 

as i was saying, both were partially correct.

Hopefully other governments will be able to see that the attempt was
made and that through failure ensured that the Uk continues to pay far
more than any other European Government on IT and has the lowest
performance as a result.  Meanwhile other governments that HAVE
ALREADY broken free or that DO break freak free continue to find huge
cost-savings, plummeting costs and rapidly as a result.

amen to that!
