A company will typically have many 'seats' that are purchased. They will be
going to a single vendor that will provide the totality of their office
solution. There is a wealth of documentation on Microsoft Office/ 365
configuration. Support is typically easy to come by.

The integration of their products work very well together, and ultimately
there is inertia. If I intend to replace Microsoft I need to consider a
number of products with different support cycles, security patching, so yes
there is the freedom component that LibreOffice clearly has.

However the pragmatist in me says that this is not a great concern for the
majority of users, not all clearly. I think that the majority of these
users download and install LibreOffice because it is free (gratis) and
ultimately a good product and for the most part compatible with Word, Excel
and PowerPoint.

Kind regards

using a number of 'partner' projects then it is an easier sell.

Can you please tell what challenges does a company have in such a

Maybe I am missing something.

Why is it hard for a company to migrate, I mean?

My last mail didn't consider the challenges a company can have but
individuals won't.
