That's important, because mental "switching costs" are some of the biggest obstacles to the adoption of desktop Linux. Windows users say, "I already know how to use Microsoft Office. Why should I take the time to learn something else?" These tutorials, by making it easy for them to learn OpenOffice, make it easier for them to start using a Linux distro that includes it."
