Thanks, Jan.
I too see similarities, but just as all quadrupeds are not dogs—some are cats—so too….
But I’ve been with OpenOffice so long and and so conscious of its architecture and its greatness
and not-so-greatness that when I see something as light and agile and young as Corinthia,
well….  Which is not to say that Corinthia cannot supplement AOO or vice versa. I think
the days of empire analogies are gone and we live now in a world of layers and patches with
local solutions making more sense than global impositions—provided that—!!—my local
solution can work with yours. Which is to say, provided that open standards can turn the babble
into song.
