Yes, exactly. That said, OpenOffice is not 10 years behind either. Yates was
trying to compare it against Office 97', which let us face it, catered for
most users' needs and offered the same level of productivity.
Ever since, any further development was an attempt to ship yet another
unnecessary item (as they do in the fashion industry). Backward
compatibility was also a motivator for an upgrade.
