I am off subject here but what exactly are the improvements in 
OpenOffice 3.4 and 3.3?
I have just downloaded it and I cannot see any improvements whatsoever!
It's WORSE than 3.3 in fact! as no Standard English version is 
available! Only the localised US English version!
I have downloaded the Spanish language pack and I shall be using Open 
office in Spanish until the developers create a version in English.
