As a comparison, see what jump Blender did from 2.49 to 2.50 with its UI. Not just the eye-candy (being more appealing to the eye and appearing more "professional"), also the workflow increased greatly, since things are easier to find now. Back to LibO - comparing the actual UI and pauloup's mock-ups (I'm not linking them again:) ), I see similar benefits for LibO. Of course, it is a huge task, and should probably happen parallel to bugfixing, and changes under the hood to make these things possible have to be done first. Many people sound like they expect a first alpha in 2012, but I think it is clear, that this will take at least a year. Also, I wouldn't say the current UI is "near to unusable", as many people seem to think. Again a Blender comparison, 2.49b was very possible to work with, just - once you got used to 2.5, you just don't want to go back. And this means, it is a step in the right direction - forward.
