Last year, the City of Bristol in the UK switched from Microsoft Office to Sun's Star Office. In April, I blogged about the publication of the business case supporting Bristol's move, and the attention paid in it to the value proposition of using the OpenDocument Format (ODF).
Today, Bristol announced a third move, officially joining the ODF Alliance.
So, although Bristol has deployed a version of Star Office that does not have native support for ODF (it was not a finalized format at the time), there is not doubt where they are heading when their next upgrade happens. The question now is: do other local governments in the UK intend to follow the path that Bristol (and Massachustetts, Belgium, Denmark, etc) has blazed?
