OOo is already installed on all workstations, and some faculty use
them in classes, but the senior thesis (mandatory for all students)
requirements dictate MS Office, so I have to clear the decision with
faculty council before actually making OO the standard for student

Of course, I do prefer to give them OO, but I simply won't be able to
get approval by the time that Spring courses begin.
