Both aspects together is a chance for LibO and AOO. I am looking forward to the announcement that both teams tie up, slow down the development of new
features and substantially reduce the bugs.
This is very unlikely.

As I read LO new features announcements, I see that most of these are made with MSO compatibility in mind. Saying "LO devs should stop developing new features" sounds like "LO devs should stop caring about MSO compatibility",
which is contrary to many users expectations.
Dear Miroslaw & other LibO folks,
I do absolutely not agree: I cannot see that anyone on this list should have said that "LO devs should stop developing new features"! But at least me - repeatedly since January - and some others too have claimed that the LO devs should "stop stop developing new features until there is a certain LibO-version that is completely free of bugs and misfunctions" (and from that version on continue developing what ever).

With such a version free of bugs and any kind of problems the people in Freiburg should never have even discussed the possibility to skip OO/LibO. No one - not in Freiburg or in other places, in companies or in private - can afford to waste time and energy playing with a program that does not work, no matter if caused by bugs or no-working functions or bad instructions. Better then to get the works done by paying some money to MS - in the long run it is cheaper.
I think that is obvious.

From what I understand of the Freiburg problem is that it is a combination of many different versions of OO and MSO being used side by side and a poorly planned migration. Migrating from one package to another can be messy particularly if it is not properly planned. Often there are subtle differences that must be accounted and planned for. Plus sometimes people will completely skip any user orientation/training believing it unnecessary when even a few minutes of orientation may solve many problems. This is true of LO/MSO but of other migrations say MS SQL Server to MySQL.
