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.
