Re: [tdf-discuss] Re: Start 2014 with Freedom, Adopt LibreOffice in your life!


Hi Luuk,

You state that there are more than 59000 bugs in the bugzilla, but you
do not state how many open bugs there are on Microsoft office. The
reason is that neither of us know how many there are as MS office is
not developed in the open as LibreOffice is.

This is not just an insignificant detail, but is fundamental. Free
software is about so much more than just a cheap alternative to a
proprietary solution. It is about everybody working collaboratively
together to make a better solution. It should never be about just a
few giving and the rest taking. We can all help in our individual ways
to make LibreOffice better, whatever our skill sets. You cannot do
this with MS office. I am not knocking MS office, I have never used it
so cannot comment, but I do use LibreOffice and it works for me.

I have to say that LibreOffice seems to me like one of the friendliest
Free software communities I have come across so I know that they can
find a way for any interested person to contribute.

Thanks
Tim

Do you call the absolute dependence on developers' powertrips and their

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.
(seeing the more than 59000 bugs here:
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=59030&list_id=321771 )


I do not see how you both contribute to the discussion here. If you are
so unhappy with TDF and LibreOffice, the easiest solution is to find a
house somewhere else.


just because it's more than just 'Freedom' and 'Adopt' that need to be
done......
