As a member of the QA volunteer group for the LibreOffice project that deals mainly with bug triaging, I would be interested to know whether or not you use LibreOffice, Apache OpenOffice, NeoOffice or something related to any of these for your daily document productivity needs.
A similar sister project exists, called Apache OpenOffice with similar goals, although a different licensing scheme for code submissions - I won't get into the embroglio of the philosophical principles behind the differing choice of licences between the two, but suffice it to say, they are still very close in terms of actual shared lines of computer code, although the two are diverging.
Both of these products stem from Oracle's OpenOffice, which Oracle acquired from Sun, the first company to open up the source code and create a community of contributors. Prior to Sun's acquisition, the product was a closed source, proprietary offering from the German company StarDivision GmbH.
Well, enough of the brief history of time, and back to the question(s) :
- do you use LibreOffice / Apache OpenOffice / NeoOffice ?
- if yes, what for - professional / personal use ?
- if yes, which modules (or apps, if you prefer) ?
- if no, why not ?
