[tdf-discuss] Is Microsoft getting worried about free Office suites?

I'm wondering if the recent offer for download of the "add supported" limited
edition of Microsoft Office Starter is a reaction to the improving quality
and dynamics of several free Office suites (with LibreOffice leading the
pack) or if this is simply a strategy of giving something for free to get
people to buy new hardware in the Spending Season?

I know it may sound absurd but since Office Starter is for Windows Vista and
7 only, some people might consider buying the new machine (the marketing
people convinced they need) just to take advantage of this freebee :)
