One of the *MAIN* reasons for using the K12LTSP project is cost in my 
opinion and to force it to run winders software puts you right back in 
the box. . .
Paying M$ for software. . .

You'd still have to pay for licenses and CALs for the M$ stuff, when OOo 
works just fine for 99% of what you will ever do in classes.
