They adopt OpenOffice.org?!?! They must have missed that *ahem* 'study' that
urmmmm... Microsoft just 'found'.

Truthfully, OpenOffice.org was downloaded over 10 million times in about 3
weeks. How many copies of Office does Microsoft license each week? How much of
it is 'pirated', i.e. given by Microsoft for free to keep Google Apps, OOo and
the likes of them from gaining 'too much' of a momentum?
