Heck, I always disliked MS Word interface via Visual Basic. I tried to do some 
pretty advanced document-generation with it and it just too cumbersome to my 
liking. Doable, but it just felt bed. I tried recently to implement the same 
thing with OO Basic and it was actually easier, even with sometimes 
inadequate documentation. So even for a non-average user has benefits 
(did for me).
