Danish decision postponed

The Parliament did NOT decide about one or two standards today.

Doubt and uncertainness about all the details made the Parliament to postpone the decision until later this year. There will be another hearing about the specific problem about having one or two standards.

The hearing will take place just after the summer holidays because the final decision must be taken before end of 2007.

The MPs are now under pressure by their own decision about implementing open standards from beginning of 2008.

At the same time the Ministry will start working on pilot projects that will cover what problems will occur when choosing double standards.

I think it's very positive, that the Parliament didn't just accept the proposal from the Minister of Science Helge Sander. To me it shows that all our letters and e-mail actually made a difference.
