I have one users that only uses Windows due to his need to access a database he created using MSO 98[?] and now using MSO 2000 or 2003. With no real Base documentation for me to deal with, I cannot figure out how to make it work with Base.

So this guy has to deal with a slow computer running XP instead of a faster/newer computer I can give him running Ubuntu.

Base is the real problem for some. We need to have good documentation on how to take an existing Access database and make it work under LO's Base. If I could take his database and make it editable and have good templates for viewing and printing of it, then I could get this guy using LO. Corel Draw 11 would be switched to Inkscape as well. I switched, with very little issues. He would do fine there as well. It is just his large personal book inventory database, and his hobby related one as well, that is the stalling point.

The ribbon interface is definitely MO's big vulnerability.

I would also argue that continuing development and promotion of Base is important.  In particular, 
decreasing the accessibility curve and making the usefulness of Base more apparent to users.
