Re: [K12OSN] StarOffice 6 and mixing "paid for programs" into K12LTSP



My philosophy [in a production environment] is, if it does what you need it
to do--stick with what works (that goes along with "if it ain't broke don't
fix it").  OpenOffice is a very good product.  I'm not sure what the value
added would be in moving to none-OSS StarOffice at this point...

If you aren't using rsync, you are *really* missing out on a rockin' tool.
Here's a nice article that I found interesting on the benefits of that
excellent tool:
