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".

The recent drama doesn't help either if the rumours of Suns ability to alienate the remaining OOo developers is true.
