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...



Please read 'why dont we merge gnome with kde to see if we can go against windows'.

I am not sure the goal is really to go against anybody. Goal is to provide the best solution for users. Joining too projects doesn't really mean we will have twice the resources. This is not a merge and acquisition environment like HP buying compaq to go against dell.
