Welcome to the team :)

Heh, I joined the lists a month or two back, but work got hairy, and then it ended. Suffice it to say, I was distracted.

My applicable background is primarily user-interface design and programming. (I'm also a bit of a data guy and my degrees are in bioengineering, so I don't actually consider myself a programmer, or even UI designer, but I've done both.)

I've been doing things with Star Office & kin for quite some time, and switched to Libre Office this year. (What can I say? SVG support sold me. I hate juggling resolutions on bitmaps in documents.)

One thing I've noticed in OO.o and friends is the continual improvement. When I wrote my thesis, my school used some really picky formatting rules. In OO, The only way to consistently achieve that was manually tweaking the page and paragraph formatting. I ended up using another word processor. Now, the solution would be tricky & ugly, but it's possible.

(The school's rules have now relaxed considerably, too: Now that Libre Office can do the picky stuff, the new grad student don't have to.)

In many significant ways, I consider Libre Office already superior to MS Office, but I'd like to assist making that unconditional. I've been pondering a few issues, and actually have a few specific comments to lay on you shortly.
