LibreOffice

Just thought I would share this... It appears since Oracles purchase of Sun, a lot of the OpenOffice.org developers jumped ship and started LibreOffice.

Not sure what it means for the future of OpenOffice.org or, LibreOffice. I think a quality open project needs funding and I may lose confidence in OpenOffice.org... But that does not mean I will gain confidence in LibreOffice.

Anyway... LibreOffice released a beta today. Since they warn that it may replace OpenOffice.org on installation I am steering clear for now.
