I have heard that France is in fact moving over 400,000 computers from Microsoft Office to OpenOffice.org. They've already completed more than half of that, in various federal government agencies.
Other countries in Europe and around the world are also adopting OpenOffice and/or ODF at a quick pace. Belgium, parts of Spain and Germany, Portugal, Turkey, Brazil, India, Singapore, the US state of Massachusetts, and many many more.
