(Nearly) full tickless operation in 3.10
Can anyone please explain how a single feature rework can be 500,000
lines of code in size? That looks a bit huge to me.
OpenOffice.org 3.1 released

My real worries about OpenOffice are outside the control of the OpenOffice authors. I'd like to see the anti-trust judge fine Microsoft $50 billion for that obscenity of a standards proposal on their new format, and another $50 billion for deliberately using an incompatible ODF implementation.
Just enough to remind Microsoft what "abuse of monopoly" means. Not that it would ever happen.
I'm not comforted by the seemingly slow adoption of the new Microsoft formats; it takes a long time for companies to switch, but switch they do: I'm starting to see the dread ...x formats at work in just the last couple months.

Or it's typical Java code, where 40% of it is auto-generated using wizards and another 40% is cut-and-paste with minor changes each time.

This part of the release notes read as 'hey! we reinvent every wheel in a
most grotesque fashion! what a feature' to me.
