How can any word processor be "10 years behind".
The technology is fairly standard right now. I don't count "Clippy" as an enhancement that's decades ahead of its time!

It does in the 2.0 version that ships with Suse 10!
Draw has never been an *equal* to Visio!!! But MS-Draw isn't an equal to Visio either! There are tons of engineering drawing programs that can do what Visio does in Linux. It's just not necessary for OO to bundle such a program in an office suite!
Oh please...again, you are citing trivial MS-functionality as something that is "light years ahead.
Well guess what? WHat is Powerpoint? Yes, a program what was developed to create OVERHEAD TRANSPARENCIES! Like who does that any more!!!! Ever hear of FLASH?!?!? I mean come on. Even the most cutting edge office suite is basically mired in the 1980s when office suites were the big thing.
I heard there was a run on Dixie cups in your supermarket. All that Kool-Aid consumption. Drink up!
No one needs more.
People need basic word processing.
And OO is free and its good enough.
