I'm hoping that this project gains some momentum. I recommend OO.org to people who don't want to spend money on MS Office.

Currently it is reasonable but there are many basic tasks that could be far more user friendly and will put users off. For example:

* Image Placement
* Image Cropping
* Text boxes
* Nice templates available by default (as in Office 2k7+)
* Easy way to make tables look nice with a few clicks (as in Office 2k7)
* Fix the default bullet points in Impress. The way they appear in relation to the text just doesn't look good in a presentation
