this means star office 8 is only less that 1 month away to be released, which means it will be based on an openoffice 2 beta, which is not too stable right now.

IMO, they should delay it for christmas.

I am using the latest release 1.9.122 while OOo2 beta was based on 1.9.8x and SO8 Beta was based on 1.9.83 I think. The latest version has not crashed on me not even once and I use it extensively. My only gripe is that when adding additional Toolbars (View>Toolbars>Insert) they don't stick once the program is closed and when OOo is reopened I have to readd it again. That is a major nuisance for me.

If what you say about 1.9.122 is true and SO8 going to be released next month, does that mean OpenOffice 2.0 will be out next month too? I couldn't find anything about release dates on the OO.org website.

Neither here. I usually kill it after I get tired of waiting it to load....
