 Hi all,

I'm following this discussion with interest. As far I understood so far, the name "LibreOffice" was choosen by who decided to split with Oracle OpenOffice. They had the right to do so, no questions about that, and I appreciate their hard work for the sake of all of us. I thank them.

Also a very difficult thing is to find a good name that is not already
registered or trademarked as, unfortunately, most of the names are.

But if it was me I wouldn't think in anything else than It says it all, and it could be easily be seen as OOffice, and the good, old, and beautiful OOo. Go-oo would stand as it is now, could still exist as it is now, and so on.
A lot less painful IMHO.
