I don't know if I agree, training costs money and time lost from work
also costs money.  The real question is is it cheaper to take the hit
every now and again, office gets herpes and dies, or to have lots of
ongoing costs training people up to speed in multiple office suites? 
Once you get out of the most basic tasks all of them do things
differently/ put stuff under different menus etc.  And you have to be
able to exchange docs as well, a whole different pain in the neck.
