I hope this *won't* happen, ever.

However, I've heard and read several comments about this matter and I'd
like to see a (somehow) official statement that confirms LibO will be a
multiplatform software *forever*.

At least, as priciple. In the facts, it will depend on dev resources.

Agreed, LibreO is cross platform, that is it's strength.  let's keep it that


Well, I for one agree that Libreoffice should remain cross-platform (even though I exclusively use GNU/Linux). I think, however, that Mirek was not arguing against Libreoffice being cross platform, but was arguing for Linux having the primary focus. If that is the correct interpretation, I agree that it will just depend on the developers. If we have more Linux developers than any other platform, we will likely focus more on Linux. If we have more Windows developers, more on Windows etc. In any case, I personally think that in "a perfect world" we should have about equal support for all platforms.
