Hi :)  
Just out of curiosity has anyone tried the Apache OpenOffice 4.0 yet?  

I really liked the sound of the toolbar down the side so i just gave it a quick go.  I was a tad 
disappointed to find that toolbar was in addition to the ones we both already have at the top and 
mostly was just a duplication of many of those buttons.  However 1st time try-outs of new things 
seldom go completely smoothly!  lol

I would really like to see both LO and AOO go this route and faster.  At the moment all programs 
seem intent on making the screen more and more like a letter-box slit with more and more wasted 
space at the sides and more and more crammed in at the top&bottom.  

It's becoming tougher and tougher to see a whole document all at the same time.  
Regards from
Tom :)  

The individual toolbars and the sidebar are all separately switchable on/off in a standard AOO 4.0 

Switching off standard toolbars releases space at screen top; using Sidebar uses side space. If one 
wishes even more vertical space one can (Operating system dependent) often turn a wide monitor on 
its side.
