Features, Office "The Document Foundation announces LibreOffice 4.0, the free office suite the community has been dreaming of since 2001. LibreOffice 4.0 is the first release that reflects the objectives set by the community at the time of the announcement, in September 2010: a cleaner and leaner code base, an improved set of features, better interoperability, and a more diverse and inclusive ecosystem."

should I blame the ubiquitous Linux repos and their single-click installs and automatic updates instead? Hmmm...


Yes, you should!

I actually prefer the Mac way where every app is self contained. Duplicity of "shared-libraries" exists but such duplicity solves the versioning DLL hell.

PC-BSD's PBI installers work in this way too; easier to install, remove, deploy, etc.
