Features, Office LibreOffice is the provisional name of a community-led fork of OpenOffice that is to be developed under the umbrella of a European based non-profit to be named The Document Foundation. This should break OpenOffice free from the shackles of Sun/Oracle, hopefully leading to a faster and more inclusive development cycle.

Used Linux for years, since 2000-2008. Used OpenOffice for a couple of months or at least tried to use this bull*. Finally switched over to Mac OS and never looked back at Linux although I adore Vim and the command line interface. On Mac I've used iWork: Overall ok but has its compatibility issues with ODF and several MS formats. Now I intent to use the industry's proprietary standard... once MS Office 2010 is released for Mac.

I'm not 18 anymore and have no time for playing those ideology GNU/FOSS/freedom& bull games.
