Do you call the absolute dependence on developers' powertrips and their
uncontestable decisions 'freedom'? I have bad news for you then.

I do see freedom here, even if I do not quite see the negative things
that you name.  I do not remember anything that I would call a
powertrip.  In every interaction I have had with a developer, the
developer has been polite and helpful.  The fact that decisions are
made by those who know what they are doing strikes me as a *good* thing.


Ok, developers may be polite and helpful,

But, is LibreOffice really that good?
or are they just trying to keep up with Microsoft Office?

In my opinion they have not done anything new, better, more elegant, than rebuilding things that already exist, and even doing so was not always a success.
