It’s the Document, stupid!

Filed under

Today the Document Foundation has issued a press release that marks the beginning of something exciting; but it’s likely that not a lot of people will understand what’s being explained through the multiple layers of buzz and general statements that were made.

LibreOffice 3.3 is based on OOo 3.3, with code optimisations and many new features, which are going to offer a first preview of the new development directions for 2011 and beyond. TDF founders foresee a completely different future for the office suite paradigm, which – in the actual format – is over 20 years old, to be based on the document (where the software is a layer for the creation or the presentation of the contents).

TDF developers are working full steam at improving the overall quality of OOo code, which is a good starting point, and making easy testability of the code and quality assurance a priority.

Is it really that hard for these open source groups to attract editors to proof read their stuff?

"Our code base is getting old. Worse, the whole frigging software looks and feels like we’re stuck in the Bush area."

So is that down by the petunia's, or over by the clover? And lets not even get started with "frigging".

Unless they do a full rewrite and strip out JAVA, it will always be a clunky POS app.
