Actually I have been looking at some of the star(Open) office stuff, and
downloaded the binary that was available, and gave it a go(for Linux). I

until the OpenOffice codebase solidifies a little. It would be great if we
could get some of their features eg. tables, same file format etc. or learn
from their code. I think that co-operation could be very beneficial. If we
could be the same format, then perhaps people could use Abiword for most
things, and use StarWord for things requiring macros etc. My $0.02
