There is also mention of Massachusetts ITD effort to move to Open Standard formats, to help make documents more accessible by the citizen's of the state, as well as to protect access to the documents in the future, as proprietary formats fade away or loose compatibility. Over the years that Sun has been working with Massachusetts, I have helped out with some trouble shooting of the plugin, mostly from an installation perspective. I'm a bit more local than the StarOffice developers in Germany, and I've had enough Microsoft experience that I have a clue what they are talking about as I act as their ears and eyes over the phone. I enjoy those opportunities when I get to do hands-on, technical stuff, particularly when puzzling out an interesting problem.
