Apple does not control what software I install on my computer. Quit
spreading such BS.


You're right, at least for now. Apple controls its OS and its updates,
which effectively can control which apps go on your computer (or not).
IMO, it's only a matter of time before such restrictions happen, just
like iPhone and iPad (which *for now* are bypassed with Cydia..). For
all the effort this may take, at some point Apple may well decide to
remove LibreOffice or break it as part of a "security upgrade". I am not
going into that discussion as even passing the App Store requirements is
almost guaranteed to fail.

Back to the initial suggestion of adding LibreOffice to the AppStore,
just look at NeoOffice's take on it:

Not much point in wasting any more time on this (again, IMO).
