MA Governor-Elect Names MS Anti-ODF Lobbyist to Technology Advisory Group

It really doesn't matter anymore (exept to the people in MA). The events in MA have made a lot of damage to Microsoft and good to ODF regardless what file format  MA will use in the future. All the press for and aginst ODF have made it clear to the rest of the world that ODF is something to count on, and most people will realize if Microsoft manages to turn the clock back to their own format, that would be a political thing. If I were Microsoft I would leave MA alone, the more press ODF gets the more chance that it will be implemented in parts of the world where Microsoft have less control over the political life. This could be far more costly to Microsoft than to just lose a few dollars in license fees from MA.
