Heh!  I suppose it depends on one's particular passions!  :)

:)  Never thought otherwise.   And I shall be at the installfest passing 
out CDs of OOo stable and bleeding edge

Oh and that link.  :)

The only reason I tend to jump on such is that it has been noticeable of 
late that a few slashdotters, print and online press types like taking 
shots at OOo because it's becoming so successful.  A bit of the tall 
poppy syndrome methinks, but there is an amount of sensationalist 
"making a story out of nothing" in the online press.  OOo makes a good 
target because our marketing budget amounts to  $0.25c in a forgotten 
Paypal account somewhere and so can't affect the advertising revenue of 
the particular publication.

We roll on in spite of that however.  :)
