correct me, if I am wrong...

I have been using Open/LibreOffice for years and it always has had a nice UI on Windows, where toolbars have been clearly distinguashable, all panes have been divided in a clear manner.

Since version 4 there is some kind of flat UI avoiding any clear line, especially in Writer. This is UGLY, MORE UGLY, MOST UGLY.

I used to install LibreOffice for customers - now I am ASHAMED coming with such an ugly program in 2013. I still use versions from the 3.x-branch.

Will there be a time when LibreOffice will look again like a professional program or will it concentrate on idiotic ideas like "personas" - not beeing able to replace what has been there before without HUGE problems and having to change persona for every different screen resolution or mostly used window size?

On Linux it looks a bit better. But I think it is not a clever decision to drop a really nice UI for most OSs and using an really ugly one for the still most widely used OS on desktops, is it?

Maybe we will get a professionally looking free Office Suite again sometime in the future. It's a shame, that "goof old Microsoft" has the MUCH better looking suite, winning back one of THE arguments. One cannot expect people to forget about beauty and to stare at ugly things instead. No idea who has made this decision...

Thanks for your interest.
