Interesting, so would that mean more emphasis on Calc (charting) over
Writer?  maybe not, but research makes me thing of Calc.. guess that's
why I stopped to ask - what would you be doing to the code, if you where
looking to do some changes quickly _for the research ?world_ (academic
world / corp research world / market-pols research ..all)

heck no :-)

Real stats are going to be done in a stats package anyway :-). But
writing articles, the academics' daily bread and butter in increasingly
done in a full-fledged office suite (unless you happen to be in physics,
engineering, or maths). Most of my article submissions to professionally
managed journals are required in .doc format. Yes, really!

But better citation management would be a boon. Mostly trying to help
zotero to get its stuff done in OO, I guess. Support for
collaboration would be a boon (something like, or
something like ooosvn which supports revision systems for
collaboration. And .doc .docs interoperability would be a boon.

Just three tiny things this academic would love to see improved :).


Hi Sebastien. Are you registered on the marketing mailist. If not, it would be great if you could join. I started a thread on he marketing mailist called "LibO in Academia" and I am collecting comments and improvement suggestions there. It would also be great if you could leave your comments on that thread.
