I think this is the problem isn't it - MS Office is so ingrained into
the computing world psyche that people are (probably) scared to try
something else in case "it doesn't work" - in similar vein I am
increasingly worried that schools in the UK are teaching "Microsoft"
not "computing" and the pointy-click generation will have grown up
from infants not knowing that there ARE alternatives...
