As a School Network Manager, there are several problems faced when trying to move completly to Open Office:
Crap Local Government Practices (As they all have Office).
SIMS.net (although not as bad as it used to be)
Staff Training and Preference (Although they should know better)
Curriculums designed for Microsoft Products.
Lack of control of Open Office (I want GPO's, not to have to fiddle with xml files just to stop kids changing settings).
Lets be honest, Schools can pick up a licence for £32, hardly breaking the bank, and at any curriculum level you should be teaching children how to use word processors in general.
I have both 2007 and OO2 on all of my systems, and try to get students using OO as much as possible.
Good luck to Becta, lets hope that they can convice local government to drop Office too.
Dear Ebayer, This item is collection only. You may bring your own drill to remove it or we can come to some agreement with a contractor. Please remember that you must replace the concrete so that I don't end up with a whopping hole in my garage.

I'm surprised the world has been able to function whilst the most talented person on the planet has been in prison.
She might have actually had to pay for her crimes should she have stayed for the full term of her sentence, and we couldn't have that now could we?
