Actually, the NAA is a complete Microsoft shop. Microsoft's binary
formats are the officially sanctioned document formats. It's only the
Digital Preservation section who use ODF to help mitigate against the
risk of being unable to read those documents in the future.

This is where part of my questions arise. Quite simply, I'm sick and
tired of pushing for free software at my work, with friends and
colleagues. It's so exhausting. Hence why I raise this topic on the
CLUG list, to get some other people's insights into what my attitude
should be.
