nice little article. Here is an exert

Quote:
[...] the list of features removed from Symphony is a long one. OpenOffice.org's database, drawing, and formula applications are gone entirely. So are options, configuration, and the extension manager for plugins. Ditto master documents, autotext, all means for making the component applications interoperable with one another, most fields, and the macro tools for adding dictionaries and free fonts.

While some of these missing features might still find their way into the final version, the ultimate impression is that Symphony is OpenOffice.org for beginning to intermediate users, with most of the advanced features either de-emphasized by the new interface, or thrown out altogether.

Not that it matters but:

I happened to stumble across my copies of Symphony from the late 80s the other day. It was sitting next to my copy of Paradox from the same time frame. I wonder if there's a market for antique software...

Add the word 'vintage' or 'extremely rare' and then try ebay
