I'm with you on the UI design, Keith. The way software looks influences how people perceive its
capability, and LO looks like something from the 90's. I like your design because it's
attractive, yet leaves the menus in place for those users who can't get into using the ribbon.
Now on the idea of removing VBA… I hate VBA, but I'd rather see LO become *more* compatible,
rather than ditching it. I want LO to become the product people can switch to, but you close the
door on switchers when you reduce compatibility. I can tell you that for sure because of my own
recent difficulties fixing a macro so automated data export from SAP will work with LO.
Step 1: Get the world to use LO as its Office standard.
Step 2: Drop M$ Office compatibility.
I agree that improving VBA compatibility would be helpful, my point
was about extensions written by volunteers.
