I would love to see EW use ODT as a native format (or at least from
the users point of view). The only other word processors I'm likely to
ever use at home are open office or abiword.

However a feature that would compel me to upgrade to the latest
version would be if it could hook into google docs and edit the same
documents I use online. I don't know if Google even support that type
of access, but it would be very useful.

Currently I am away from home so much, that Google docs is the main
place I do personal work.
