The difference in cost of the initial license, when considered from the full deployment/productivity calculation of an IT manager, is often not the deciding factor. The primary cost of changing software is not the license, but installation, configuration, training, and lost productivity during conversion.

The total costs of all that would be FAR lower by converting from Office 2003 or any of its predecessors to LO compared to converting to Office 2007/2010.....users could at least get going almost immediately with LO whereas the new ribbon seemed to be almost unfathomable to a lot of people, so yes, going from one version of MS Office to a SIMILAR version (as in Office XP to Office 2003 or Office 2007 to 2010) I agree. Going from a menu-based Office to a ribbon-based Office no, I don't agree.
