I reply to myself to add another aspect of the Windows installer that, in my opinion, should be updated: the file association part.

The reason why, at work, i've waited to upgrade OpenOffice (actually go-oo) from 2.4.1 was the (absurd, in my opinion) decision to remove the possibility to change file associations from the installer, and, as a consequence, from the reinstall/modify section.
I took part (with the bernicl name) in the lengthy discussion at:
Finally the decision was reverted in 3.3 and the file association option was restored

To me, that interface works well but, in my opinion, should be updated.
For example, i think that Works documents are spread enough to deserve a check box in the installer file associations section. And would be great if that interface could be ported, with more granularity, as a tab in the options page.

Sorry for the noise.
