Interesting concept. But I think they are investing a lot on the "Cloud"
with the Chrome Book laptops that investing time on an offline suite doesn't
make much sense...

In the same line of thought: Google Docs is fine in the "Developed"
countries where working in the "Cloud" is a reality. This is not so for more
than 2/3 of the world's population

I do believe that currently LibreOffice is the leading alternative to MS
Office (but would love to see some numbers :) )


Well, not specific to LibreOffice, but take a look at some of the documents
I've compiled: http://login.kristshell.net/~olorin/Dokumenter/
