Senate report blasts Mass. OpenDocument policy June 30, 2006

Posted by rjdohnert in Tech News.

A Sante oversight commitee has a few word for Massachusetts over their choice of using ODF.  Now the report does not mention Microsoft at all.  Pacheco who was in cgarge of the committee makes these following statements ” The process, quite frankly, was driven by one individual in a very powerful position (Kriss) issuing a memo to an individual in a less powerful position (Quinn). Then he was told to get it done and forget about any obstacles,”

My Take; Even though some parts of the report echo Microsofts stance ie Accesibilty issues and such I cant say whether Microsoft had a hand in this or not.  If Quinn and Kriss did violate the procedure for getting the standard adopted it might be awhile before its reapproved.  I just want to know which Open Source backers contacted Kriss to get him on the ODF train.  (That statement probably just made me lose a few readers  )
