LibreOffice 3.5 review

Filed under
LibO

OpenOffice.org (OOo) has long been the open-source office suite of choice for Linux, not to mention users of other operating systems who’d rather not stump up for Microsoft Office.

However, a rift between its developers and OOo sponsor Oracle led to a fork in the project in 2010, and LibreOffice has been developed as a parallel open-source office suite by The Document Foundation (TDF) ever since.

TDF has been much busier than Oracle with its development of LibreOffice though, and v3.5.0 is the second update in just over a year — OOo is still at v3.3.0 (TDF retained the OOo version numbering convention for the sake of consistency).

Huawei CEO: Will keep using Android as long as it's open

He made the said comment in a Weibo post, where-in he also noted that Google's mobile OS has promoted the development of smartphones, which in turn has benefited consumers. Interestingly, he didn't say anything about whether or not Huawei is developing an in-house mobile OS - said to be called Kirin OS. His silence on the matter, though, can be taken as a confirmation of sorts, especially when his comment reflects the possibility of Google restricting the companies’ freedom with Android in future.
