From SearchEnterpriseLinux.com, here’s a nice collection of three stories — a city government, a school, and a corporation — each has made the transition from MS Office to OpenOffice.org, and they have some interesting thoughts and advice around what they might have done differently.

One of the stories even comments that while they got some initial advice from Novell, they opted not to follow the voice of experience (Novell has done this migration several times mind you, including our own internal migration from MS Office to OpenOffice.org).  “[the interviewee] wishes more of their advice had been followed early on, however.” 

I guess you can add that one to the “Oops file”.
