Would you care to elaborate on that statement? Is your prejudice based
on the fact that there is nothing in the open-source community that can
even begin to match the robustness and ease of use of MS Office, and so
as to simplify this question, I am referring to the latest offering; ie
MS Office 10, or do you have some other specific complaint?
Unlike your appraisal of the situation, I find that users use office
suites, in this case MS Office because it offers the end user what they
want. Specifically, an all-in-one application that integrates
seamlessly into their home or work environment without the need of
Microsoft's decision to offer MS Office in several flavors was a wise
investment. The MS Office Home and Student 2010 can be purchased for
$79 from many distributors. I know over a dozen users who have
installed this very suite on their home PCs simple because the
price+value exceeds anything available anywhere else.
