Could you be a bit more specific about the anomalies? I haven't run
anything major and the minor things could usually be fixed with
changes to
settings or creation of macros.

Certainly minor, but annoying. Worst thing really is inconsistent
behavior. Hard to explain, I should have wrote it down while I was
experiencing it. Trying out Lotus Symphony... and so far I like it.
Still would need LibreOffice for dealing with MS formats, but looks
like Lotus is a strong contender. I think I'll blog about it once I
get used to it more.

Surely you know that OO is probably a descendent, or at least
a very close cousin of Symphony.

The other way around - OO was originally StarOffice, and Lotus Symphony
is now based on OO.
