OpenOffice.org still sucks, only a bit less

So it seems that OpenOffice.org 2.1, present in Ubuntu Feisty, finally has a native AMD64 executable, which should improve its memory requirements and make copy-paste less buggy. Unfortunately it seems you still are unable to insert cross-references to numbered items in enumerated lists, which is the technique of choice of MS Word users to insert bibliography references and lists. And of course creating a "Bibliography Database" is both non-trivial and very buggy. I tried it again but had to give up.

Thankfully I can still use LaTeX, which has much better quality anyway...
