TextEdit only handles one kind of documents.

In the ol' days, started with a writer document on Mac.
This lead to a load of questions like "how would I create a
spreadsheet or presentation". Or the alternative: "I want my default
document (i.e. what gets opened when I start OOo) to be a spreadsheet,
I never edit text, I only do calculations".

So the startcenter was not for when all documents are closed, but when
it is launched. (hence the name)

Is there a third-party-app that is comparable to LO? I.e. has one
launcher, but handles different kind of documents?
