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.

RE: Btrfs?

Member since:

Btrfs is already in the kernel, under the GPL. It's too late for them to close the source now and AFAIK development on it continues.

Btrfs is a frighteningly incomplete filesystem with no fsck tool at this time (!!) and no 1.0 release yet. People have suffered data loss and I am not touching it until mid-2011.
