8. use it on your llinux/win/mac machine

9. having all you need for the school in one suit/program (cause other projects which has
to make money trying to split up the programs like one program for writing onother for drawing
to make more money)

10. possible to open other formats like .doc (maybe note that it does not work perfect because
it's a propritary/closed format) but works mostly

maybe also note some features that are new to 4.0, like the optional side bar which makes
the work easier and faster.

If you also want to mention that there are still some things missing, here are my most wanted/missing
featured I still remember from shool:
(of course there are more things like  Inserting a bibliographic reference int a frame (e.g.
image frame) (->will show up allways as [0]))

#create a 3d surface chart (surface plots)
#save the annotations in impress
(don*t know if these  are still missing)
