Further to Fernando's post I'd like to add a thought.

I hadn't noticed the project planning thing, but it seems to me that
(aside from that?) What LO misses, compared to M$Office, is an email

I think the point is, (and this has been done to death on the Open Office lists as well IIR) that CHOICE is the whole thing. The versions of both OO and LO downloaded from the respective websites (NOT, I'm afraid, those versions installed with distros like Ubuntu) have very good integration with ANY EMAIL CLIENT you choose, unlike MS Office where Word will ONLY use Outlook contacts for example. (Of course Word will also use an Excel or Access spreadsheet/database as a mailmerge source, but for Contacts, it's Outlook ONLY) so IMHO the fact that OO/LO have never had an integral email client is a GOOD THING ^TM and should be kept.
