LibreOffice: The Future of Office in Linux

Filed under
LibO

LibreOffice 3.3 was released a few weeks ago and this marks a very important milestone in the Open Source Office environment. In my previous post I talked in detail about OpenOffice.org but completely forgot to mention LibreOffice and all of the exciting things that are happening at The Document Foundation.

The Big Bang of Open Source

In September of 2010 many of the top developers of Open Office parted ways from Oracle and the Open Office project. This split from Oracle was in a sense a revolution. OpenOffice.org used to be sponsored by Sun Micro systems. After Sun was bought out by Oracle there were rumors and fears that OpenOffice.org would go the way of OpenSolaris which lost support from Oracle. The Document Foundation initially hoped to keep Oracle and have a strong working relationship, but Oracle decided not to support LibreOffice and the rest is (or will be?) history.

Is it just a clone of Open Office?
