Yes. A lot of schools moving toward using StarOffice i Denmark and
Norway.  The program is under evaluation or in real use as the
preferred office-tool in many schools. Altso a teacher who writes a
best selling learning-book using MS-products in education states that
StarOffice dont lag behind Office at all - and it could be deployed at
once. 

The only obstacle is that the user-interface is in English, not
Norwegian. But the word-spelling is i Norwegian, and the schools use
the Danish-translated version for now.

The translation teams working just now on translate the GUI into
Norwegian: <URL: http://www.nynorsk.org/anp/oo.html>

A report from one of the "Linux-schools" in Norway has reported their
experience with StarOffice as an replacement for MS Office <URL:
