Funny thing: A certain Microsoft evangelist, made a call out of the blue on Saturday to a friend of mine waiting to see if I had blogged about this outcome (incidentally, I had posted this entry earlier in the day). This is before the official announcement of the results. Anyhow I shall reserve my comments on this. Sounds like gloating to me though.
At the end of the day the issues remain the same for me concerning Document Standards:
Vendor Independent (be it Microsoft or IBM)
Independent of Operating System
We now have two standards globally with the ODF and OOXML.
What I would hate to see happen is the Kenyan Government, in their quest to develop proper ICT policies for the country, being coerced to support a particular vendor.
