I'm doing much the same at my work. We put OOO into a few Winders boxen
and had nothing but good things said. I recently put out Gimp32 and
Scribus. Additionally, I am working with Zimbra to replace the
Exchange2003 server.

We are setting up the Linux DHCP server mainly becasue MS does such a
crappy job of doing DHCP. I even have a Linux server setup as a Member

Ahhh - to be rid of MS, that's my goal! Heck! I am MS free here at
