I was chatting with SA edu the other day and they are
thinking of using Google Apps. The appeal, in priority

  1. reduced systems administration
  2. reduced cost of software rental
  3. single view of documents at home and school,
     thus reducing the use of USB keys to transfer
     files and subsequent file loss and security

Of course there's a world of difference between "thinking
about" and "doing", but I did find the reasons for considering
Google Apps interesting.
