A lot of teachers at our school have discovered Google Apps and are
pushing it as a replacement for StarOffice because it is web-based,
allows students to submit documents easier and a whole host of other
benefits.  However, what has also been observed is that the servers
get very very sluggish once an entire class of students sign in.  The
suspicion is that this is due to Google Apps and Flash?

Does anyone have experience with Google Apps in their environement?
Pro's and Con's of using it vs StarOffice?  How does it run in
alternative browsers (e.g. Opera, Konqueror, Nautilus)?
