OpenOffice.org -> LibreOffice, oh my… — 1 Comment

  1. I was wondering why OOo hasn’t had any updates recently…

    It took me months to talk management into using OOo as an alternative to MS Office. I finally got permission to being a pilot program on a couple of dozen workstations. I had even purchased OpenOffice Enterprise in order to manage the OOo through Active Directory. Unfortunately converting more PCs to OOo will now be more difficult because of this news.

    I totally agree with you. The split could weaken both OOo and LibreOffice and potentially drive end-users back to MS Office. From a technical perspective OpenOffice is a very stable product. And with Sun backing OOo, management had a big company for name recognition. Ditto with Oracle but Microsoft groupies will surely use the break up to strengthen their argument for continuing the use of MS Office in the corporate environment.
