If the author "David" is David Purdue, President of AUUG, I believe he
works for Sun Microsystems (owner/vendor of StarOffice). Reminds me of
a Sun presentation that I attended several year ago on the benefits of
an organisation moving completely over to StarOffice. One of the key
presenters (from Sun) gave his entire presentation in M$-PowerPoint!
Clearly some people in AUUG still aren't convinced that Unix (or Linux)
is ready for the desktop (or laptop).
