Ahh, I made the mistake of thinking you meant something like a Cisco Catalyst of Juniper router, or managed switches.  The IT does seem pretty ideal for quick and dirty management of those consumer-end devices you mention.  In fact, I should try it next time I needto configure one!

Agreed.  I went ahead and tried the Gmail Docs and spreadsheets, and it did not work: would not accept the browser version.  I think that would be the ideal solution, since the IT will be hard-pressed to keep up with the data storage requirements of many users' e-mail usage.  It could be done with large flash cards, but seems easier just to let Google handle all the data.  Assuming you don't mind that they have it.

I also tried to install Gnumeric, as I liked what I saw on my XUbuntu installationn.  No dice, it just failed without an error.
