I would consider giving up after one day as bad management...either in
preparation or in execution of the migration. On top of that, costs for M$
products are normally quite low at universities due to academic rebates. So
the reward to switch to OO/LO is lower.
The best strategy how OO/LO could help in reduction of migration and
acceptance problems is probably compatibility, compatibility, compatibility.
Even if compatibility means being compatibility to something stupid. Once
OO/LO has reached say 30% market share, trials to be better than M$ products
at lower compatibility might be started, but not earlier. Waiting until that
share is reached is not in the nature of the typical volunteer contributing
to OO, I am afraid.
But my problem is different. I am stuck even before migration because of the
anticipated efficiency loss, not because I am afraid of acceptance or
