Not?  I can't remember wide-scale deployments of OpenOffice-based
desktops 8 years ago, ranging from cities to whole districts.

8 years ago, the Linux desktops were considered playgrounds when
compared to the "real things" like HP VUE, CDE and so on.  Now all
the proprietary Unix desktops have been abandoned, typically for

subsystem in kernel address space?  A graphics subsystem that you
can't even omit in servers?
