I passed Dan's comment on to John McCreesh, the Marketing Co-Lead at OOo, who responded as below.

"A poll has indicated 86% of users would prefer to try 2 rather than buy MS-Office 2007." But the
link is to an Australian online survey about Office 2003.

"Studies have shown it is ten times cheaper to move to 2 than it is to upgrade to MS-Office 2007."
No link to those studies. Guess why?

Fear-mongering, fact-mangling... I expected better of OOo.
When did they start getting all corporate and FUDdy?

They're quite right - with all the HTML/CSS hacking two links
got rolled into one:

85% of users prefer OOo 2 option vs MS-O 2003
OOo 2 migration ten times cheaper than MS-O 2007;amp;pubid=3&issueid=66

Correctly stated, it makes the poll results look even better.
I'll get it fixed tonight.
