Same is true with OOo v Gnumeric to be honest. Gnumeric is a spreadsheet
, Ooo is an office suite with at best a toy spread sheet module.

So is 500 things on the menu. The general user needs guidance on what to run,
but I agree with you that stuff that is deliberately added should be on the
menu of that user- a lot of this is "where is the ****ing menu editor" stuff
though. Once you hav that then the desktop can give you the expected basic
program described by purpose and the user can add things like "real spreadsheet"
and "non-sucky audio player"
