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.

This is an interesting point of view...

So, what about joining efforts to create a bigger open source office suite 
project? I mean, LibO, KOffice, Abiword, Gnumeric et als all together against 
closed and commercial products...
