Here are a couple places to start.
I applaud you for making the move. I think more schools need to seriously consider going there. I have read the other posts on support costs, etc.
If people haven't looked at OpenOffice since the 1.x release, they need to check out the 2.x release. Many complaints people had have been addressed.
Personally, I am very close to using all open source applications to do my work. There are a few commercial products I am attached to. As Adam mentioned, use the right tool for the job.
If Governor Douglas has his way with the education cap, schools might not have a choice to purchase commercial software. We may be in the position of using OpenSource or not at all. Fortunately, the quality of OpenSource has leaped forward tremendously in the last few years; in many cases as good as their closed source counterparts.

I am starting to make the move to OpenOffice. My business teacher was
asking about Training material and lesson plans built for OpenOffice.
Does anybody know of any?
