So would I, and many others here, but you still need a good word
processor, and StarOffice provides that.  Go and tell any company you
will install them Debian, and they should write their documents with
Vim, either in plain text... or a secretary to write a simple letter in 
TeX/LaTeX with Vim... no way!

BTW, StarOffice debianization with alien (from .rpm) went smooth but,
aren't there any native .deb package around?
