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.

I don't care about the name, hell I'll use LibreOffice or even if it was called "Mangled Baby Ducks", as long as it works.

I'm also very uncomfortable about Oracle acquiring Sun especially concerning MySQL.

Hell, I would use it for the name if that were the case!

Me too. Please call it Mangled Baby Ducks. It's brilliant.

And while you're at it, start from scratch and do a different, original and functional office suite.

Actually "Mangled Baby Ducks" is a much better name.
