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 OO.org has benefits
(did for me).
