Oh, well, Windows may disappear before LibO! ;-)
we can only hope....

Microsoft, as of late, is moving in that direction - as a company.
They almost definitely have <20 years life left; and are quickly working to
it under 5 years.

Only if LibO fares better than MS Office :)

It would also be great if LibO, KOffice, AbiWord,  Gnumeric, Ease, and
the other open-source editors worked together to set  standards.

It's called Open Document Format (ODF) and LibO/OOo support it.
It's managed by OASIS ( and
been accepted
as an ISO standard as well.

I know that ODF is a standard. I meant set other standards, such as keyboard
shortcuts, default websites for content (fonts, templates, clipart,
...), symbolism, command names, default fonts (as I explained, if all the
open-source projects agreed on a triad of default fonts, these fonts could
easily gain the widespread usage as Times-Arial-Courier have enjoyed for
years), etc.
