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.

I think that another problem is the chilling effect caused by over zealous OO evangelists in the past. I always found OO to be extremely buggy up until the 2.0 days. Prior to that, it's style handing and section headers were extremely unreliable. I wonder how many people were convinced to try it when it was pre 2.0 and ended up saying "never again".
