Switch to ‘LibreOffice’

Since “change is constant”, I have installed LibreOffice this week. Its a rewrite of OpenOffice done by a spin-off group of folks from the OpenOffice world  The Document Foundation who wanted to keep the OpenOffice  code as Open Source. (They were apparently concerned about the code becoming proprietary now that Oracle has bought Sun). They have done a lot of work to clean up the code and whilst I can’t honestly say it seems any slicker than Oo, that’s always a good thing to have some housekeeping. It certainly runs without any problems on Vista and the next Ubuntu release will have this as the default office suite. If you have used Oo then switching is easy and if you haven’t then give it a try, see my previous post on this topic if you are hesitant to make the change.
