I do hope that LibreOffice On Line becomes a reality! It would be the only

There is one of which I am aware, having used it at a previous employer: Zimbra Docs.
It is not widely documented or discussed online, for reasons I don't know. Here's a brief review,
It worked pretty well in my usage, I'd use it again.
Ben zimbra is proprietary as well now owned by vmware. With my luck on trying to start using vmware
for virtualization as a start up business they have put me off using their products. Would be nice
to develop a mail client to add to the LO suite.
There appears to be an open source version of Zimbra still:
Whether it has the same feature set, I'm not sure. As mentioned, the documentation on Zimbra Docs
I dont know about that, but they have the free zimbra desktop mail client which i have tried and am
not impressed with.
That client is a different story, and I didn't like it either, but you can use any email client you
want with the email server.
Regardless, it's the browser-based word processor, spreadsheet and slideshow creation tools within
the Zimbra self-hosted server application that we're talking about here. If you haven't looked at
them, I suggest you do. To my knowledge, they are the closest thing on the internet to a
self-hosted, open source equivalent to Google Docs.
