RE: [school-discuss] StarOffice in Edu.
The bad news is I haven't found a good explanation why education haven't
adopted StarOffice/OpenOffice wholesale. The good news is in the UK it's
happening in more and more areas, and with it a recognition of the
effectiveness of Linux, particularly by primary schools and specifically the
benefits of thin client setups. Watch this space...

Subject: [school-discuss] StarOffice in Edu.
I read today in a release on zdnet "Sun expands StarOffice giveway" (see
below) that Microsoft has 90% of the office suite market in Edu.
I'm curious why a free product like StarOffice is not more prevalent in
education. Is it an issue of support? Usability? Laziness (people don't
to switch ffrom MS Office)? Or other?
I appreciate your thoughts.
Please see what I care about!
