Features, Office Yesterday we ran a story on how educational institutions defaulting to Microsoft Office may stifle some people who do not own a copy of Office or Windows. A Forrester Research report now states the bloody obvious by claiming that organisations stick with Microsoft Word not out of necessity, but out of habit.

They stick with Word because they feel they have to be compatible with the rest of the business world, who all use Word.

They are scared of using a rival, in case other people cannot open their attachements, therefore the tender goes unread and the business is lost.
