I should've placed a little more "tongue in cheek" when I said that. I 
tell them pretty quickly that it is in fact not MS Office or Firefox. 
I'm lucky to be in a position where the BOE and Supt. trust my judgment 
and no one is dictating any particular piece of software. I even have a 
board member who was already using OOo.
