Open Office compared to which version of Star Office?

Apparently Open Office and the newer versions (6.x) of Star Office differ
from the older Star Office (I still use 5.2 a lot) in that they don't give
you a "desktop" environment.  They act more like other programs (each
document gets its own window) rather than trying to pretend to be a
computer-within-a-computer (documents get windows which can only live
_inside_ the main Star Office 5.2 window >:^( )

I use KWord, too.  I don't do much word processing, though.  Sorry. :^/

Good luck!
