According to Richard Barrington (Sun's head of government affairs and public policy) lower cost isn't the only reason to switch to a mix of software suppliers; "We've had to work very hard to make our products access data stored in old Microsoft formats for example. We know of some government bodies that access this data using Star Office because Microsoft's new products like XP can't do it."
