Of course this applies even more to public bodies as
paying €big for windows and word shouldn't be a prerequesite
for accessing public services. And it's a little ironic that

It should be noted that "word" documents can be created
on linux with openoffice for e.g., but because the format
is controlled by M$ and there are rumblings about DRM,
this may not be the case in the future.
