And it also scares students into mindless orthodoxy, not the goal of university life.
MS Office will most certainly not "simplify your life"
It crams the System with junk fonts, is slow, a resource hog, and difficult to learn.
A student working in Pages, KeyNote, or Numbers can open any MS file format.
For the MS-centric professor, just export the file back in his/her required format.
I abandoned MS four years ago.
Have no problems at all exchanging files or tracking changes with students or editors.
(Another alternative to MS Office is the free OpenOffice)
