US state plans to abandon Microsoft Office

For those who think that the OSS revolution will be driven by Desktop (or any platform role) may find this interesting.

Make no mistake: Microsoft’s primary product (and entire strategy) is Office. They use it to drive Windows, Exchange, and the rest of their software stack. OpenOffice.org has a way to go before many power users will feel like it’s truly “good enough.” But news stories like this one herald a day when Microsoft Office’s dominance will no longer be granted straight out of hand.
