to create a huge mammoth (is this how one spell 
big-prehistoric-elephant in english?) like an Office app is not a task 
for a single person.... Man, just think about the thousands of features 
that you don't use... then wonder about the thousand of features you 
don't even know!!!!

The word processor task... imagine the code to manage one single 
document! those things are not HTML!!!! they are more complex than 
that... now wonder about SPREADSHEET!!!!it take years and a team to 
create a simple one.... now, integrate the whole office.... I would not 
know how to begin a project like this. I think thats why there are 
special developer teams doing this kind of thing for years.

don't know, for me it's just to big.
