Same here in the United States.  You do that, you're risking becoming 
the next Ernie Ball.  That's a lot of the point of Free Software in the 
first place--freedom from being assumed a criminal until proven innocent.

William J., can you tell us more about your situation that makes you 
want to run specifically Microsoft Office on an LTSP architecture, when 
K12LTSP already comes with OpenOffice.org 1.1?  Perhaps we can suggest 
some alternative solutions for your situation.

Do you GNU!? <http://www.gnu.org>
