Hi Matthias

I dropped the full functional description for Calc and Draw in my
examples because it would have diminished readability to use 'Calc
Spreadsheet Designer'. The real issue here isn't HIG-compliance, it's
that having umpteen 'OpenOffice.org' strings cluttering up the listing
is getting in the way of users finding their programs, and for no good
reason. Also:

"The Draw application has nothing to do with Desktop Publishing."

Well, that's what I've been using it for. It feels more like a Publisher
than a Visio to me. But we're not here to debate that.


I don't agree with removing the module names. While for the default
setup this would be fine, if the user installs an alternative word
processor, you have a small identification issue in some circumstances
(e.g. tech support).
