Re: [tdf-discuss] Re: IBM is alive ;)


Hi Don, I have read your email, and I understand there is a huge perception asymmetry between us, 
which I will try to explain with a blog post (as I do not feel appropriate to discuss this on a 
mailing list). Best regards, Italo

Italo, call me if you want to discuss. There is no 'bashing' going on. 
Please stop. We are both open source projects, Apache and TDF. Let's start 
to have some respect showing please. It will help everyone.

Personal blogs are personal blogs. There is no enmity toward LibreOffice 
from IBM. Let me be clear. Yes, we have some difference of opinion on 
foundations and licensing and so on, but we share a common passion. I hope 
you see this.

What is this talk about a competitor product? The Apache OpenOffice 
project does not seek to compete with LibreOffice. 

It's time to stop this nonsense. 

Respectfully,

/don

IBM has never been involved in TDF, and has been openly bashing TDF and
LibreOffice on personal blogs of IBM employees and AOOoI mailing lists.
Sorry, but IBM is off topic here.


I am well aware of all that (IMO some IBM employees bashing TDF on their
blogs and on public mailing lists and forums, does not make it a corporate
decision ;) ). 

Yet, this is also about a competitor product based on the same (original)
source code.

The migration to the Cloud seems quite interesting and fit for a general
discussion list ;)

Especially because a cloud version or cloud connected version of 
LibreOffice
is in TDF's plans?
