Hi Mike,

"(...) I think it's fair to call it a successor project (...)"
If you think so, I agree :) (y)
After all it`s just a word, heritor, successor, or whatever.
Everybody understands ...
Sometimes I'm nitpicking. And "If you spent less time nitpicking, you'd get
more work done.".

I would say that the main issue is that you cannot fix the bug yourself
and that also means you cannot hire someone to fix it and it is not a
matter of how easy it is to submit a bug report. MS Office is a nonfree
software which users do not control.

Let's think of ways on how to emphasize that. The day Microsoft makes it
easy to submit a bug report, it does not make it acceptable for me to
use MS Office.
