Good article

I appreciate the time and effort put into writing the article. I'd like to share my experience with OO.
I worked for a small company in the e-learning field, that often shares its documents with the outside world. The common answers I got everytime I pushed the twenty something editors to adopt OO to save the license fees on Word was "it changes the fonts" and "it screws up my formatting" when importing/exporting to Word 2000.
IMHO, the rate of adoption would increase dramatically if the conversion to/from Word was better.
