Munich, and other German places, tried that. The problem was that they had to exchange lots of documents every day with other German places still using Microsoft Office.

The word "compatible" has a special meaning in the computer industry: good enough for salesmen but not good enough for actual screen bashers.

So Libre Office will not be a practical choice until the vast majority are using it.
