The costs for upgrading to newer version of MSO still has some people I
know using MSO 2003, in business and home.  Then there are those who
send out complex MSO 2010 .docx documents to people that cannot view
them, even on their MSO 2007 versions.

Problems with a *lot* of these new XML formatted documents totally *crashing* LibO (yes, even the latest 3.5.5 - haven't tried 3.6 on any of them yet, and they have proprietary info in them so cannot post them publicly) is why my boss just decided to start buying Office licenses with new computers and buying some additional licenses until we get licenses for everyone.

I'm very sad to see this development, and I'll continue to install LibO side by side, but I fear that its use will slowly reduce until no one uses it at all any more. The main thing that will keep its use up is the fact that all of our *internal* documents are still ODF format, but that may change too. I'll push to keep them in that format, but don't know if my way will win out.
