At a presentation I gave last week, a couple people told me that they
installed OpenOffice and changed the Icons to the Word and Excel icons
and several people haven't noticed!  Of course another benefit of OSS
is that people *can* use the same software at home (at least once
there's a native version of OpenOffice.org for OS X).
