Hi Ben,

This discussion is a bit, as we say in Dutch "ouwe koeien uit de sloot halen" :-) (hmm, old stuff that maybe you shouldn't care about any longer)

I have seen moments too in the first months of TDF that did not feel so good. However ...

While I was originally optimistic that TDF/LO would be better than Sun/Oracle
OOo, as a result I have yet to see that happen.
That's not to say it isn't happening or the community isn't taking over - I'm
just waiting a bit longer to see.

So for now yes, I continue to use OOo. If TDF/LO shows it is truly a community
project and not ruled by a benevolent few that are forcing the hands of the
community, then I will likely switch over and start participating more - until
then I shall continue to watch.

.. in this community there is no single person or party pushing decisions. All that participate have a saying. But of course, most in areas where your participation is relevant. And sure, still some processes are not perfect. But that is noticed and people involved discuss about how it works and haw to improve.

Be welcome.
