"Fedora will release this in Fedora 15 due out on May 10th. ... In theory, openSUSE should be the first Linux to arrive with LibreOffice since its release date was set for March 10th, but the acquisition of Novell by Attachmate seems to be slowing them down a bit."

That's why it's headline-worthy: With firm plans from Canonical (which may actually ship first), it means the Big 3 in Linux will switch to LibreOffice in the space of 2 months. What greater ringing endorsement of Oracle's acquisition of Sun could possibly... oh, wait.
