OpenOffice 2.4 released - Does anyone care?

I’m a linux user and I don’t. Frankly, OpenOffice is so far behind Microsoft Office now that it’ll never be anything more than a footnote unless they do something drastic in 3.0. The user interface feels like it’s a generation behind. The user workflow design is archaic. And don’t tell me that OpenOffice has all the features the average user would need. I need tables in Impress. Why I have to wait until 3.0 for that is beyond me.

I’m on OpenOffice, because I can’t find anything better. If Microsoft decided to do Office for linux, I’d be one of the first to use it. Is Lotus Symphony out of beta yet?! ;)
