An idea I've been having for 20+ years now is: how about an office automation tool (wordprocessor, spreadsheet, whatever) that would come with the bare minimal features (define: bare minimal) and could be "enhanced" by adding features through a plugin system à la LibreOffice extensions?
I believe they are called TeX (for word processing) and R (for calculations). But there is a reason they never get substantial mainstream market share. Most users simply do not care if software is bloated and slow as long as it gets work done. Only professionals are ever interested in investing time into adjustments that will benefit them in longer run.  Yes, I know that calling R "program for calculations" is radical oversimplification. -- Best regards Mirosław Zalewski -- To unsubscribe e-mail to: email@example.com Problems? http://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/mailing-lists/how-to-unsubscribe/ Posting guidelines + more: http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Netiquette List archive: http://listarchives.libreoffice.org/global/users/ All messages sent to this list will be publicly archived and cannot be deleted
