linuxmigrante.blogspot: As an advocate of Open Source, I decided since I stated this blog not to say anything good about Free Software if first I haven't used it myself. That's why whenever I say a newbie can use a distro, it is because I, being a newbie myself, have been able to use it.
thevarguy.com: With Ubuntu set to default to LibreOffice in a couple months — and with other Linux distributions also planning a switch, if they haven’t already made it — I figured it was time to see what I have to look forward to (or not) in LibreOffice come April.

thelinuxbox.org: Libre Office is one of the most exciting forks currently in the open source world. I believe that statement so strongly that I have even put my money where my mouth is and financially contributed to this project. That said, I'm concerned they are preparing to perpetuate the same errors that OOo was making.
