Hi all,

This is not a K12LTSP question, but I hope you can help anyway.
We're looking into moving all of the computer labs in our district to Open
Office next year.
The tech department brought together the teachers who manage these labs and
after several hours of exploring Word and OO side by side the teachers felt
comfortable enough to give the o.k. to move forward. Now we are trying to
plan this rollout.

This rollout is is going to happen on both Windows boxes and LTSP nodes,
with the majority being on XP/SP2 under Active Directory. Could folks who
have gone before give me some ideas of what to expect in terms of teacher
and student needs, complaints etc. I'd love to be able to anticipate
problems and solutions ahead of time. Are there any case studies from
schools for OO that anyone could point me at?
