It's good to see OOo getting some good press. It's even better that the press is coming from an outlet like The Associated Press, which means that it'll get widespread exposure. OOo 2 looks to be a breakthrough release, with the suite now being something you can safely install on your parents machine, even if you haven't switched them to Linux yet. It's programs like OOo and Firefox that will be many peoples first introduction to Open Source software. This makes them extremely important as once a person realizes this gratis Open Source stuff is worth more than they paid, they are likely to try more. Eventually, they just might get it.
