Price may be one marketing point, though this may be offset by training and
support costs. But we must keep in mind the huge amount of mind share that
MS Office has build up over the years. People are too used to Office and how
it works. In fact even if LibreOffice is better (we hope) than MS Office, we
still won't see a widespread adoption of LibreOffice or FOSS software for
that matter. I am pretty sure that big school boards like the TDSB have
contracts with Microsoft as well.

Thanks for the note Sadiq. Yes, the training and support costs could be a problem if LibO does not have the infrastructure to take care of a "general use" help desk type of mailist. But so far, the user mailist on OOo has been great. Our new LibO user mailist is new and is just started to attract attention from users. We just have to market it properly.

BTW, you speak of large boards like the TDSB. Are you Canadian?
