We use the latest version of Open Office in one of our elementary schools in a lab environment with no problems. We set the defaults to save as M$ type documents (.doc, .ppt, .xls) so that if they try and use it in MS Office on another machine it works without any conversion issue. We tried using it at our high school and got too many grumbly, grumpy users. They wanted all the wizards and templates that come with MS Office so we have basically surrendered and gone back to MS except where we are running Linux desktops. -Jean Jean Campbell Mt Mansfield H.S., Underhill ID School, Smilie Elementary School Technical Services 802-899-4690 X502 >>> [log in to unmask] 2/16/2005 9:08 AM >>> The battle of Open Office vs Star Office. We're looking. Anyone had any horror stories or luck.
