It isn't MSO. Nor is it OpenOffice.org.

They use a product called Softmaker (http://www.softmaker.com/english/). 
Or at least they did when we helped them do their trial in 2007/8...

The computer was running a custom OS built on Java IIRC.

The product is aimed directly at Popey's mum & Daily Mail readers ;-)
