OpenOffice.org

I can't believe what crap OpenOffice writer is. Maybe it's just me, but the thing crashes a lot.
After a crash, you can recover the document (losing any edits you did in the process), and it happens frequently that the program crashes immediately after the recovery.

Gah.

EDIT: After finding somewhere that the default Ubuntu OOo was buggy as hell (no shit, Sherlock!), I found this recipe to do a manual install from the RPM binaries hosted on the OOo website. It seems that Writer is now less crappy -- I haven't had a crash yet.
