    Yes, to the extent that they can use Web clients for this work (and they 
    more and more), they could use only their GNU/Linux boxes for that, even if 
    involves another layer of indirection (e.g. VNC). 

If the web servers use standard protocols, they should be able to access
them with Firefox or Icecat.

                                                      But they typically don't.
    Perhaps this also has to do with less support on GNU for the office tools 
    use to get this work done. Or perhaps it's just ignorance, or perhaps it's
    bandwidth slowdown (e.g. VNC). I don't know. And perhaps this will change. 
    today that work is done through Windows.

We need to do something to make this change.  Since you observe this often,
how about if you make a regular practice of suggesting it, and record their
