"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.

OpenSuse isn't the first to arrive with it. I've been using LibreOffice in Arch Linux for quite some time now.

Granted Arch isn't a 'release' style Linux distribution, but it sure does seem to have many things 'first'.

I have never in my 10 years of IT, heard of LibreOffice... that should tell you how far behind linux is.


Can we just take a moment to just laugh at this supercilious idiot. Too bad his 10 years of IT didn't teach him to look things up before he comments on them.
