Well I hear that too but its obviously the biggest lie in IT.
You can't make MS Office to work. There is no way to do so.
Even asking MS the question why something does not work costs
a lot of money and you don't get a solution.

Example: try to put group templates on a WEBDAV "share".

So in the OS world you can actually spend that money on someone
indeed giving you a solution.

Btw, SUN has a plugin for MS office to read/write odf.
(Which works instead of the solution from MS itself).
