I hope you've got enough technical data now to strengthen your argument.
I asked specifically if OOo could run alongside M$ and would this cause problems to the Network, as I have been continually informed it would.
I really do want to stick to teaching - I'm pretty good at it! - but both I and my pupils need OOo to make the job of teaching and learning easier.
..and I hope I've given you some valuable ones. I'm not prepared to get into a flame war over it.
I COULD go back to using Banda's, chalk, and everything written by hand - but that is irrelevant here. I'm asking IT professionals for their comments on:
"Is there any technical problems associated with running OOo on a Network alongside M$."
