Yes, only serious users of technical or complex documents normally use the
outliners. Most others don't even know what it is, even developers; jut look at
the attempts above to explain what an outliner should do and is since the
beginnings of Dos. 

I was given an old macbook two years ago, and found the use of Writer '09
excellent. I use outliners for everything. Now with a new macbook pro I got an
outliner from the Apple App Store for 14,99 Euro!! It is as good as openoffice,
much cleaner and good for just writing lots of text and documentation. When it
comes to using graphics openoffice is better for placing the graphics linked to
text or paragraphs etc. 

As Susan Craig mentions, I see many more people now rather spending double the
amount of money to get excellent hardware and a Linux based Mac. No more terror
from the operating system and programs written just for the masses. There are
an incredible amount of very cheap applications for under 20 Euro for all sorts
of uses. If you are a professional in audio or graphics, nothing touches a mac.
I also use LibreOffice now (sorry OOo :-( since Oracle's disaster).

Outliners in OpenSource Office will not come in the near future. Settle down to
something else; I even used M$Office with (free) wine on Linux or (pricy)
CrossOver from CodeWeavers on Macs and Linux.

For the masses LibreOffice is coming with all Linux distributions. It also
works well on Macs, with a lot of improvements since the fork from OOo in it's
dark Oracle days. Hope Apache does better, but I'm afraid the developers that
left are not coming back. Pity for OOo. CU at LO and MBP.
