A Java spin-off of AOO written in Java on the other hand, starting
from scratch, would be good. Call it AOO-Lite.
But better yet, would be some FOSS benefactor buying Thinkfree office
and open sourcing it. That' s what Sun did over a decade ago with
StarOffice, sparking OpenOffice.org. Sad to see that there' s not much
forward-thinking like Sun' s in this industry today...
