I want to congratulate you for the courage you have shown in creating
 new project.

Thanks for your encouragements: it's always appreciated ;)

It is possible to have some rumors about LibO roadmap?
What are the criteria for development? Issue Tracker (Number of votes
or Age)?
Comparison with the competitors (MsOffice)? At the discretion of
s? etc

I'm not sure there is a roadmap yet. We currently are merging patches
coming from different contributors: further developments aren't
targetted yet ;)

Just a personal opinion, I'd like to see improvements in LOWriter...

Many people (students, scholars, technical writers, etc) want a word
but with much greater indexing and authoring tools (You could involve
ersities as partners?).

As Writer developer I would be really interested in improving that...
though I have no idea of the requirements behing bibliographic works.
Would you be able to get some people helping to describe what needs to
be done? If you can find some other developers interested in hacking
that part, I'm ready to help them getting started!

I am very positive about making improvements on things like Writer, however
I don't know many people use the bibliographic features.  On the opposite I
know about many things that many users used, that could be fixed straight
away and improve the usability on many users.

Things like being able to change the orientation of an OOo page, without
needing to do so many clicks and changing styles and so forth.

Easily implementing the numbering of pages without also a lot of clicking.

Image orientation should also be simpler, with a better way to get it the
way the users want to. There are a lot of decisions to make (on pages, on
paragraph, on characters). Most users get confused and also don't see to see
this dialog, mostly they want to arange it through mouse behaviors. Lighting
the area  when clicking on an image could also help this issues, or at least
be aware.

So I guess my point is let's improve on the users most used features, and go
from there to build a better experience for the user.
