  1. Well, it is possible to be innovative in this area, witness
    Apple’s Pages and their word processing application (can’t remember the name now).
    But honestly, StarOffice probably does not have the manpower
    needed to be innovative…

  2. Then why not start a Firefox-like system, mixing OO.org’s components in a lighter app?

  3. The opposite of “complicated” is not “featureless”; it’s “simple”. IME as a user interface designer, when you make something simpler, people are *delighted*.

    Besides, Firefox showed that a core+extensions architecture can work quite well. Why isn’t OOo modular like this, too? Customer Y can download extension X => everybody is happy.
