Thats not nice to write such things. (also the things in the previous mails). Sounds more as Microsoft than opensource.
The argument that everybody has its own goals is one of the current biggest problems of the opensource community (as also readt in the editorial of the professional computer magazine C't (in german area)). This namly means also that there is no coordination. You should better make a step back and see the whole picture. There is whole issue at the opensource community and everybody should not just ask what the can do to improve their own environment. Its the goal to improve the whole environment. So just look over the horizon. What made the PC to that allround machine it is today? Sorry to tell You hat, meight be a shock for You: It weren't the developers or scientific users. It were the small business users who wanted to run their excel and word. So if anybody here wan'ts Linux to get success the Linux tools MUST take care about this users because this users will make the decision about the future of Linux. And they will not go out business just because the use of MS
Office. They rater will forward support microsoft by using their desktops. Just THINK: If we can provide them a Linux desktop with their ms office. Will they not rater switch later completely to opensource? How will you show them the benefits of opensource when they just know their virus contaminated windows desktop and make the admins crazy.

It's their problem that they like to waste money on MS Office. I'd say good
for them, let them bleed money. Maybe they'll go out of business. Out of the
business gene pool -- so much the better for everyone. I wish them what they
