The sell here for Microsoft is very very easy.  The small businesses
that I do consulting for here in the US all use Microsoft operating
systems and office products.  At this point, when they order a new PC
as either a replacement or an upgrade, they are unable to order
Microsoft Office 2003.  Microsoft has enough monopoly control to force
users to change to the new version, simply by making the old one

The change to Microsoft Office 2007 will happen, and the change to
MOOX will inevitably follow.
