Further thoughts.

I believe that the including of helper utilities in a standard LO
distribution could help to differentiate it from OOo. As an example, if LO
is invoked without any parameters, it takes considerable time to load, and
then presents a choice of its major applications. Instead of this, it could
quickly load a selection box that offered a range of simple tasks (view a
file, convert formats, email a file etc.) as well as the major apps. I use
Linux with a KDE 3.5 Desktop in which the major apps are presented
individually in the main menu. What I'd like to see in addition is a
selection page like this that loads quickly, and presents a series of simple
tasks without loading the whole shebang. 

All Users of OOo and (sign of the cross) Word are automatically accustomed,
not only to the loading delay of these monster apps, but to their
(unavoidably) complex menus. If LO were to present a quick, simple interface
of the type I've described as the default invocation, it would be a paradigm
shift for Users.
