UK PDF Readers Sprint: update

The letters to the UK government departments and institutions requesting the removal of adverts for proprietary PDF readers have finally been prepared for sending!

I wrote a new PHP script to generate the ODT documents complete with envelopes, and then printed and folded them all. There were 65 in total, which represent all the new adverts that were reported leading up to and during the recent UK PDF Readers Sprint.

The text of one of the generated letters, in this case to the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, is shown below.

Hopefully these letters will help to shake up the attitudes of some UK councils and get them thinking about using more Free Software and Open Standards within their organisation.

I’ll get these letters posted as soon as I can.

    Hey Blogs,
    I know what you mean, display screen measurement should not be much less than 2.four inch,os platform may perhaps be symbian or android(i just have to use fundamental uses like pdf reader,RSS reader are will have to)
    touchscreen attribute is not necessary coz i’ll be implementing it for searching also,GPS and components can be considered as secondary requirement if any of my essential prerequisite isn’t going to match with my budget,i can assume about these characteristics.
    i figured out some options like- micromax A70,samsung sprint M900(not positive it has been introduced in india), nokia x3,samsung wave 533.
    Great Job!
