Do you have reading problems? Seems like it. If you follow this
thread, the OP talked about "rewriting the app in JavaFX" I answered
that  redoing the whole suite in Java was probably not worth it, as
it' d face lots of technical hurdles, and that I' d vote against it.

Then I said that perhaps doing a sub-project would be great, for
document viewers or perhaps a lightweight version of the suite, that
is, a spin-off project.

Oh yeah? When was the voting held? where can I look at the results?.

Gee, you' re in the wrong project, then. You should move to "Libre"
Office where many of the java-haters are. Because lots of Lotus
Symphony code, which will be integrated into AOO, is, gee, Java-based.
