Re: [tdf-discuss] Re: Article about LibreOffice, brands, etc

Many of us on these lists have been using LibreOffice since early 2011. I use have - since their first "official" offering.

I really think you will like LibreOffice.

One of the great things about it is the "language support". There are over 100 languages supported and some languages, like Spanish, have several spell check dictionaries. In Spanish's case, there are about 25 country based versions of the Spell checking dictionaries to choose from.

Also we offer support - for free - via several different methods. These email lists are just one of them.

Microsoft surely does not have that type of support - either number languages or free.

Good question! When we say that LibreOffice is "free software," we
actually mean two different things:

1) It's free (as in no-cost) for you to use for as long as you like

2) It's Free Software[1], which means that you, as a user, are granted
the freedom to run, copy, distribute, study, change and improve the

In most of our descriptions, when we say "Free Software" (capitalized
or not), we are talking about a matter of liberty, not price. To read
