There are multiple alternative office suites already in Linux. Adding
more isn't really going to aggravate the problem too much for users
We suck. So lets suck a little bit more. Is that what you are saying? :-)
especially since there is a default installed already.
The first time I ran an installer 10 years ago, I remember staring at a screen
which gave me 2 options: GNOME and KDE, and the description for both of them
were exactly the same except those 2 words.
I don't want an user staring at yum or gnome-packagekit or whatever and
seeing 2 office suites which appear to be identical except for their names,
and wondering what the hell is going on.
The real weakness
in Fedora is that our package manager GUI has no way for users to figure
out which one is more popular or recommended.
And how exactly are you going to explain all the nuances of how OpenOffice
and LibreOffice are different? Don't forget the little bit about Go-oo. :-)
