What about Apache OpenOffice?

I don't think the above statement is correct or true at all. Apache
doesn't care about "end user friendly", "complete", or whatever words like
that. Apache is about building open source software communities. If they
are eating the dog food, be it filet mignon, or tuna-based, they are
eating the dog food and the Apache I know is happy to have their community
here.

Cheers,
Chris
