I agree with alspnost. I think the Grumpy Editor is on to something interesting. It's virtually unheard of to get an objective review of anything in the tech world.
Here's an idea; devise a list of office related software tasks and use that as a sort of benchmark. There should be 5 or 10 tasks like:
user B receives email form user A with specs for wheel
create diagram of wheel including text from body of email
create table in spreadsheet of wheel test results
insert diagram into document
insert table into document
email document to user C
user C formats and prints document
It makes me nervous to hear the Linux crowd talk about how great the Linux desktop is. The Linux desktop is good for simple things but there are serious holes.
