Education Minister Steve Maharey claimed that Microsoft insisted that the Government should pay a licence fee for all Apple Macintoshe's in schools to use Microsoft Office, even when they were only used in half the machines.The department says that schools should use Apple supplied programs similar to Microsoft Office, and Neo Office, an open-source program developed by volunteers.
