OpenOffice.org becomes Libre Office!

Today, the OpenOffice.org community has released Libre Office, and become The Document Foundation!
With Oracle's recent take-over off all things java and Sun, the OpenOffice.org name, site, etc., has become the "property" of Oracle. Thankfully, the software is all LGPL code, and, thus, still belongs to the community.
As such, to remain FREE, and ensure continued development and progress, the former OpenOffice.org development community has become The Document Foundation, and released Libre Office, the continuation of the former project.


Libre Office (running on Debian Stable, with openbox wm)
.

Links to the .deb packages for Debian, Ubuntu, etc., do not appear on the download page, but they can be had here.

I have already downloaded and installed Libre Office, as seen in the above screenshot.
Still the same AWESOME, Free office productivity suite!

I found this article interesting.

Among gnu/linux users listed are included:

  • various US and foreign government agencies, including the French Parliament, Cuba, Spain, the US Postal Service, US Dept. of Defense and Navy, etc.

  • Many large companies (you knew about IBm, Dell and Google, of course, but how about Burlington Coat Factory, Amazon.com, Omaha Steaks, and Virgin Airlines?)

  • a myriad school systems



Likely, you are using services running on gnu/linux, somewhere, whether you knew it or not!
