Ministry to end Microsoft standard

Norway's new Ministry of Modernization wants to end dependency on Microsoft products for those wishing to read documents produced by public administration.

Minister of Modernization Morten Andreas Meyer wants a more democratic IT (Information Technology) policy that allows public Internet services to be accessible to all, regardless of their operating system or software, Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) reports.

Meyer promised that users can expect equal treatment in the future from public administrations and services based on open standards.

"If a document from a public department is only available in Microsoft's .doc, that is, Word format, then users without Microsoft's office suite will not have access to the document," said Kristine Hafskjold, project leader in the Technology Council.
