Maybe not only a desperate plan

Europe it seems, it's at the forefront of Open Source adoption. Here I found the annual report of Open Forum Europe that says:
"Looking back, 2008 will probably be perceived as a watershed for the recognition of 'openness' as an inevitable commercial requirement. (...)
No less than 16 governments have now chosen ODF as their preferred open document format, with Germany being the latest in the list of governments making this decision. Support for ODF has now moved beyond the desk top with support within applications and the launch of the ODF Toolkit Union."
As I live in Europe this only could mean a (slim) hope that my Don Quijote-an quest could lead not only to personal salvation but, in some time, to some way of earning a living.
