      multi-threading is good and all, but they need to work on the performance of their Writer application as well. The fact that it sometimes lags when I'm typing does not do good for it's reputation.

          I think a more user friendly interface has higher importance. Its 2000ish look scares the crap out of MS Office users.

            If the developer is watching you might want to change the code to use a thread group instead of spawning lots o threads.

                  This will be a nice feature. I've heard some people wish libreoffice could load large calc sheets faster and this would help them (they have more than 1 core on their machine.).
