Features, Office For years, developers decried the tight fist Sun kept on the development of its office suite, preventing the hacker culture from improving its software. So now that LibreOffice is, well, free, it's not surprising to see one ambitious hacker has developed a mechanism for theming it. Let's have a round of applause for Jan Holesovsky, whose patch in the upcoming 4.0 edition of LibreOffice allows you to style LibreOffice using FireFox Personae. Holesovsky's blog is full of other interesting UI changes made to LibreOffice, proof perhaps that letting hackers hack is the best way to keep your project improving.

Member since:

If I'm not using, it's just bloat. And if I were to recommend it (again, I'm now less likely to), I may have to support someone else needlessly using it.

Also, no, I'm not thankful for things that I don't need and actively do not want just because they are free.
