Hi Jani,

I use the xubuntu 7.04 alternative herd 5 cd with latest updates and
there is openoffice.org-writer without the openoffice.org-gtk installed
by default. Maybe the dependencies has changes because now I don't see
relation with the openoffice.org-writer and the xubuntu-desktop package.
I believe openoffice is a very good program to have by default in
xubuntu. Interoperability has a higher priority than speed for me. I
can't communicate with the rest of the ms world without a reasonable
*.doc interpreter. In a perfect world this would not be necessary but...

Kind regards,

Jelle
