ah, one one last thing and then i'll stop...

- in this case the different UI-solution would have been a difference. 
i've never meant to say that the differences should only be in the UI. 
or that it's particularly important to have differences in the UI just 
for the sake of being different.

- i was talking about people comparing scribus to programs with a 
similar goal. i guess that i don't have to explain yout that for most 
uses, a word processor and a spreadsheet have different goals.

as i wrote, if you're interested in discussing the issue in a serious 
way, i'm there. if you just want to dissect my sentences and try to take 
them to absurd conclusions, well, i'm leaving.
