Microsoft is trying to push its OOXML (Office open XML) format against ODF. India has decided to vote “No” against OOXML in the ISO standardization process.

“We unanimously agree on the disapproval of OOXML with comments. The same will be submitted to ISO,” National Informatics Centre head and BIS technical committee chairperson Nita Verma said after a marathon meeting that lasted over six hours. There was no need for a voting as only Infosys Technologies and CSI supported Microsoft. Link

Infosys, HCL and a few others are backing MS for OOXML, a format which got plenty of technical defects( Link ). Shame on you Infy… !!
