IBM Policy Switches from MS Office to OO.o

eldavojohn writes "It's frequent that we hear of a country or city or company switching from Windows to Linux but it's rare that we hear of one third of a million employees being told to use Lotus Symphony (IBM's OO.o variant) over MS Office and also to use the Open Document Format when saving files. The change has been mandated to take place in the next 10 days. Of course they are doing this to illustrate that they actually offer a full fledged alternative to Microsoft. With i4i stirring stuff up against MS Office and absolving OO.o from litigation, are we on the verge of a potential break from Microsoft's dominant document suite? Hopefully IBM supports OO.o past their acquisition of Sun instead of concentrating on Lotus Symphony."
