Agreed. Personally, I use OOo sparingly, as I prefer Google Docs. My
interest is largely spurred by the attraction of being able to apply
ALv2 to this awesome piece of software. I believe that will be a
*huge* enabler for the software world. It is vanishingly rare to have
such a situation. "Epic" might be a good word :-) ... and who
*doesn't* want to be part of something like that?
