“We chose it because of cost,” says Chris Waite, the IT director of Travel Republic, a large online travel agent based in England. Listed as the fastest-growing private company in 2007, Travel Republic installed OpenOffice through necessity. It now runs it on all 120 desktops.

“The cost of the Microsoft Office suite is prohibitive, so we chose OpenOffice and it does everything we need,” Mr Waite says. “It’s saved us about 18,000 ($A38,000). I just wish we’d deployed more open source software from the outset.”
