And, this means search tool is worth to consider
Sorry, but it is not affordable for us. We do not have the money to hire people to revamp NeoOffice's underlying OpenOffice.org code. We are two people who are barely able to work on the tiny donations that we receive and no venture capital firms or angel investors are interested in investing money in NeoOffice so we must do what we can with the meager donations receive.
What that means is that we can do only what we do now: fix bugs and provides user support. Those two things already require us to work 7 days a week and 60 - 70 hours per week to do. That leaves no room for changes to OpenOffice.org's features. In fact, we do not even have time to fix the many hundreds of confirmed OpenOffice.org bugs in Bugzilla.
A good rule of thumb is that if you do not have the funds to hire engineers to implement your idea, then we probably don't have the funds either. Software feature changes are like house remodeling: it doesn't cost anything to come up with lots of great ideas, but it can cost a fortune to implement those ideas.
