Let me clear so that we can move on: Unless Oracle gives us the

It would be impossible to please everyone. I like it personally, but
understand the arguments of those that don't - that said, it is not
something that can just be changed at the drop of a hat, so, LibreOffice
it is... :)
Not to belabor this point...
But there is also the issue of news reports. I've read at least a
half-dozen stories about the "forking of Oracle" on online news sites.
The list of articles include:
- Glyn Moody's blog
(OpenOffice.org Discovers the Joy of Forking
- and the H-Online
( LibreOffice - A fresh page for OpenOffice
There are other great write-ups.
My point? With the press LibO has received, how would it look if there
was a name change?
Would the DF recover from the PR nightmare if there were a sudden
announcement of a name change to the flagship product?
Personally, I don't have a problem with the name.
I'm presuming there was a host of discussion before the announcement of
the DF, of which I missed. Fair enough. The decision has been made. I
can accept that. I can appreciate that others have different viewpoints
about the current name and decisions reached. Maybe we can revisit this
issue when LibO reaches a major development milestone?
And no, I do not recommend nor suggest naming LibO after Stephen Colbert ;-)
Any chance we can move on to other issues?
