I hate to say it but if people can't work out how to use OpenOffice /
StarOffice then they really shouldn't bother with computers at all. And if
they're the ICT or IT staff then maybe they're in the wrong career ;-P

I agree: people will complain about anything. I did a largish installation
of KDE once and noone complained that Konqueror didn't work, that
Microsoft Word wasn't there. They complained that the background on the
desktop was awful.
