Exactly.

And I hate the ribon.

Sadly, Excel is still "smarter" than Calc.

Here, here. A cold death in hell to whoever designed that awful thing. A keyboard user's nightmare.

The Ribbon is not a keyboard user's nightmare. It is very accessible for keyboard users.

So I can modify it and distribute it in binary form? I can change all the branding to my own and sell it as my work?

Excellent! JakeOffice, here i come!

Certainly.

You can modify it, and sell binaries under any brand you wish for any price you can get, as long as you do not violate the terms of the license by denying the recipients the rights they have under the license.

The LGPL nowhere forbids selling of binaries under a different name.

It just states, that any recipient of the software has the same rights as you have. Yust fair!
