I would not merge everything together, but rather have the following communities:

- **leave Software Development as it is**
- **Power User community separate and define a category for Office suites**
- **have a Linux community**. Linux OS (installation, configuration etc.) is an entire world that cannot mix with software application usage.

My rationale for such a division is given by trying to answer the following question: how interesting are the questions from one area for a person mainly interested in another area?

- many Office suites related questions from Software development were not welcomed (had downvotes) or removed.
- not sure, but Linux related questions might seem gibberish for most of the general applications users and even developers that are mainly working on Windows
