Subject Re: Quickstarter: was Re: [ANNOUNCEMENT] Apache OpenOffice 3.4.1 (incubating) released

Good Morning  Group,

It would seem that most of what was good about OOo was thrown out when 
Apache Software Foundation (ASF) took over its reissue as an 
"incubating" project.

I went through this Quickststarter bit when I erroneously installed the 
RC version and so I had no problem with the actual 3.4.1 Update. 
However, I had to download the update because the update inside the 
program didn't work. Hopefully this has has been corrected in the real 

Hope, is all I have for AOO, because it looks like its going to be a 
long journey to a smooth operating program, like I did with the original 
OOo, but then it was new (a child) and bumps were expected.
So far, in my opinion, AOO is "brain damaged" on its way to adulthood, 
I don't know ASF so my faith is tenuous. Volunteer organizations are 
greatly appreciated, but are also well known for lengthy learning curves 
and long times in making community decisions.

I've read all I could find at the website, on ASF's procedures, but 
garnered little actual "to the point" information about how a program 
gets from incubation (kindergarden) to highschool. There is no 
step-by-step chart of this procedure, unless I was looking in the wrong 
places. Teachers often forget that students don't have the basic tools 
to learn a new technique or lesson. I'm a new student of ASF.

Take Care.
