Well, it is always good to promote ODF, but if you work in a business
environment, you cannot get away from MSO's file formats.  I create the
documents in LO and save my copy in ODF, but I still have to send
editable files to some people who's business or agency has not or cannot
switch to LO.  So for these people/businesses/agencies, I need to send
them MSO file formatted documents.

Sadly, we will soon be rolling out Microsoft Office to most of our employees due to the poor support for the new MS xml file formats (we get a ton of these from external clients/vendors, and complaining to them and begging for them to send the older file formats is simply not an option).

I am hoping that Microsofts licensing will allow me to set up a Terminal Server and provide 'shared' access to Office (ie, once the max number of sessions is in use, other users will get some kind of 'sorry, all instances of MSO are in use, please try again later), so we don't have to buy a license for everyone...
