Microsoft does not recommend or support server-side Automation of Office. You can do it anyway at your own risk. Here are some of the things that you may want to consider - support.microsoft.com/kb/257757

comment How important is Domain knowledge vs. Technical knowledge?
@Benjol Thanks for your reply. I too understand the importance of business. Its the reason these technologies exist. Trust me, I get this big time. My point is that a dev should have the bigger picture and focus on nitty gritties of the module he is working on. Is it wrong in saying that its very difficult to understand the details of the entire business?

comment In what situations would it be technically 'impossible' to release a system as open source?
While you make some valid points, I am not sure about not making OS open-source part. Linux, while being open-source, is much more secure than Windows. Even MS are now giving access to source code of Windows to selected developers who then point out vulnerabilities in the code. There was a critical update of Windows due to this initiative a few weeks back and was even in the news (though I am not able to find URL of that news article).
